The BBC is reporting breaking news that the Interior Ministry is Saudi Arabia has been victim to an apparent car bomb. No reports of casualties
A blast has been heard near the interior ministry in the centre of the Saudi capital, Riyadh, witnesses say.
Details are still sketchy but some reports suggest the explosion was triggered by a car bomb.
The blast comes a day after Saudi security forces killed a suspected militant and a civilian during a shoot-out in the capital.
Security forces in the oil-rich state have been waging a campaign against Islamic militants since May 2003.

I pasted the entire story due to its short lenght. No doubt it will be updated as information comes in.
Saudi Arabia is politically unstable with its ailing leader living abroad and at least two princes vying for control of the Kingdom.
