CAIRO (AP)--Saudi police reportedly arrested the kingdom's most wanted terrorist on Thursday, according to pan-Arab satellite TV station Al-Arabiya.

The Saudi-owned station reported late Thursday that police captured Faris Ahmed Jamaan Al Showeel al-Zahrani in Abha, a town 800 kilometers southwest of the capital, Riyadh.

According to the Cable News Network, the Saudi Interior Ministry said an operation targeting the man was still going on.

Saudi authorities released a list of 26 most wanted terrorists following a series of bombings in Riyadh on May 12, 2003, that killed 26 people. On Nov. 8, another suicide attack on a Riyadh housing compound killed 17 people. About half of those on the most wanted list have either been killed or captured.

Maybe they will throw him a party, and give his family a monthly allowance, and let him pick his favorite Saudi prison...
