Apparently some high up militants were killed in Saudi:
Saleh Mohammed al-Aoofi was among six al-Qaeda linked militants said to be killed during police raids on several locations in two Saudi cities, Interior Ministry spokesman Mansour al-Turki told The Associated Press.
…al-Aoofi reportedly fought in Chechnya and travelled to Afghanistan where he joined al-Qaeda shortly before the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
I was thinking today that an attack on the UAE is now not out of the question given the breaking of the ‘covenent of security’ in the UK. And there are many high profile Western targets in Dubai.
