Saudi Arabia on Monday said two militants were killed, along with a security official and a bystander, in a shootout at a police checkpoint in one of the kingdom's central provinces.
 
The interior ministry said the militants opened fire on the checkpoint, killing a police sergeant and a Bangladeshi national.
 
The ministry said in a statement that the shooting happened on Sunday afternoon in al-Qassim.
 
It's located some 400 kilometres, or about 250 miles, northwest of the capital of Riyadh.
 
The ministry says the militants opened fire on the checkpoint, killing a police sergeant and a Bangladeshi national.
 
The ministry said police returned fire, killing two militants and wounding a third, who was later hospitalized.
 
A motive for the shooting wasn't immediately known and no group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
