2000 Saudi Bombings
On November 17, in central Riyadh at the junction of Oruba/Olaya road, a car bomb killed British national Christopher Rodway and injured his wife Jane. The bomb was placed underneath his vehicle and detonated as it approached a traffic signal.
The following week on November 22, in Riyadh close to the RSAF HQ, a car bomb detonated on a vehicle driven by British national Mark Payne. Although the driver and his three passengers were injured, all survived the attack.
Less than one month later on December 15 in Al Khobar, a small IED in a juice carton left on the vehicle (in the car park of the Souks Supermarket) of British national David Brown exploded as he attempted to remove it. Brown survived but lost his sight and part of his right hand.
