Saudi Arabia has released a new list of 36 terrorists who may be recruited by al-qaeda. The Interior Ministry offered rewards of $267,000 and more for
information leading to the arrest of a suspect. The list contains many major names suspected in terror networks.
Saudi Arabia issued a new list of 36 wanted terrorists Tuesday, many of them young operatives who may have already fled abroad — possibly to Iraq
— amid a fierce crackdown on al-Qaida's network in the kingdom.
Saudi authorities have been claiming success in their efforts to uproot militants who carried out a series of bloody attacks two years ago. Security
forces have killed or captured 23 out of 26 figures on the first wanted terrorist list put out in December 2003.
One of the most significant figures on the new list was Mohsen al-Fadhli, 24, a man Washington considers a leader in the al-Qaida network in the Gulf
region. It was the first word that al-Fadhli, a Kuwaiti, was believed to have been in Saudi Arabia and involved in attacks there.

As always, I believe its a step forward in ending the problem of terrorism abroad. Its also nice to see countries like Saudia Arabia cooperating in
the challenge. I believe more in depth "lists" and such should be made. They seem to have a corny rewards system, where it increases with how many
terrorists you foil.
