Ethiopian opens fire at police patrol

An Ethiopian man almost killed two police patrol officers during a car chase. The chase started after officers got suspicious of the attacker's car.

The officers continued to chase the vehicle, which did not have any license plate, until it made the driver, a Yemeni man, pull over.

The driver confessed that he was trying to smuggle the passengers, all undocumented workers, outside Riyadh and it was he who ordered the Ethiopian man to open fire at the police officers.

The driver and workers were arrested and a machine gun as well as ammunition and a large amount of money were seized.
