People thought to be members of the terror organization IS have begun to fill the most wanted list of the Ministry of Interior in recent months.

The latest members of the terrorist group to be added to the list was a theologist, Anas Al-Nashwa, and Nawaf Al-Enzi, who law enforcement authorities said were involved in the killing of two security force personnel in Riyadh.

The list also contains the names of 132 wanted persons accused of joining the Al-Qaeda terrorist group.

Most recently, Anas Al-Nashwan appeared in a video recording published by a production company affiliated with IS. The video showed him killing 28 Christian Ethiopians in Libya with knives and bullets. Al-Enzi, however, was killed in a US drone attack two weeks ago. Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has since confirmed his death.

A senior security source has been quoted as saying by a local publication that the Saudi law enforcement authorities have received several reports regarding Nawaf Al-Enzi, noting that citizens have responded with a distinct fervor to the announcements regarding the wanted persons, in order to ensure that the men are caught before causing any harm to the community.

However, the source said that “although we receive a great deal of reports, unfortunately they are mostly inaccurate. They are in the realm of speculation.”

Interior Ministry man Maj. General Mansour Al-Turki said that all the information available to the security authorities in the Kingdom on wanted persons is thoroughly monitored and followed up in coordination with the competent authorities. “When information is available on any of the wanted persons on our list who are currently residing in another country, the information is documented and the ministry makes all efforts possible to arrest him”, said Al-Turki.

Al-Turki said that information concerning the wanted persons is updated continuously: “In front of the name of each wanted person there are notes written to show the last place or country where the person was seen. The majority of Saudis wanted by security authorities live with terrorist groups outside the Kingdom, making it difficult for them to monitor or follow up on their movements.”
