RIYADH -- Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal vowed Tuesday to pursue the "murderers" behind this month's triple car bombings in Riyadh that left 34 dead.

"Saudi Arabia will not hesitate in facing these criminal acts in all their aspects (and cracking down on) the people who accomplish these horrible acts ... or encourage them," Prince Saud told reporters.
"These are murderers who deserve nothing but to be dealt with effectively and strongly.
"The criminals will be incarcerated and those who abet them will also be taken into custody," the prince said, adding that Saudi Arabia was "as one in facing this scourge."
Prince Saud said the suicide bombers behind the May 12 attacks were "people who want us to return to the 14th century. As to their intent, it's beyond criminality.
"If it's their intention to change the government's attitude toward reform ... or its association with the international community, especially the United States, it will not happen."
The car bombings at expatriate housing compounds in the capital left 25 people along with nine suicide bombers dead and 194 injured.
Teams of investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the British police arrived in the kingdom shortly after the Riyadh attacks to help with the investigation.
