Riyadh, Nov 11 (IANS) At least two people were killed 68 suffered injuries in clashes in this Saudi Arabian capital city Saturday, media reports said. A total of 104 vehicles were also damaged.

Riots started when unidentified individuals involved in violent acts inside narrow roads in the capital city and attacked the public with stones and sharp objects, reported Xinhua citing a Riyadh police official.

A police spokesperson announced the arrest of 561 riot inciters and unidentified people. Of the total injured people, 28 were Saudis and 40 expatriates.

According to Al Arabia TV, the unidentified individuals were illegal Ethiopian workers who opted for violence to resist their arrest as part of a nationwide campaign to search for illegal workers after the end of a six-month amnesty that ended early this year.
