DUBAI Saudi Arabia's crown prince and anti-terror tsar sought on Tuesday to reassure Saudis of the country's security after suicide attacks targeting the holy city of Medina, the U.S. consulate in Jeddah and Shi'ites in the city of Qatif.

At least four people were killed in the attacks on Monday. No group has claimed responsibility but Islamic State has carried out a number of similar bombings in the kingdom in the past year, targeting Shi'ite Muslims and Saudi security forces.
