Three theatre performers ’stabbed during show’ in Saudi capital

A man stabbed three performers at a live show in Saudi Arabia’s capital in the first such attack since the kingdom began easing decades-old restrictions on entertainment. The suspect was a 33-year-old Yemeni expatriate and has been arrested. The victims, believed to be of foreign nationalities, have sustained minor injuries. The show was part of a two-month-long entertainment festival in Riyadh.
