Suicide bomber planning to attack Mecca's Grand Mosque blew himself up

In what could have been a major attack on the largest mosque in the world, authorities in Saudi Arabia prevented it when security forces surrounded a house where a potential attacker was hiding, officials said. At least 11 people, including five policemen, were wounded when the suspect blew himself up in a nearby neighborhood after the security forces , Saudi interior ministry said, according to reports.  Five people, including one woman who were suspected to be involved in the attack plot were arrested. The attack was planned by three groups — two based in Mecca and one based in Jeddah — the ministry said, according to reports.
Some images were circulated on social media which showed an alley filled with bricks and debris apparently from a blast.
