Saudi Arabia says foils bombing attempt on Aramco fuel distribution terminal

DUBAI, April 26 (Reuters) - Saudi forces foiled an attempt from Yemen to blow up an Aramco fuel terminal in the southern Jazan province on Tuesday using a boat laden with high explosives, the interior ministry said in a statement carried by state news agency SPA.

The agency said forces opened fire on the boat, which was operated by remote control, stopping it at sea before it reached its target. There were no immediate reports of any injuries in the incident.
