According to the government-controlled SPA news, a vehicle carrying two American citizens came under fire in the Al-Ahsa district of Saudi Arabia's Eastern Province. Police say that one man was injured. The report added that the wounded American is currently in stable condition.  
 
The Al-Ahsa is a majority Shiite district in Saudi Arabia. In November 2014, seven Shiites were killed there in an attack the Saudi government said was ordered by the Islamic State militia.
