At least 10 Americans are killed in a series of suicide bombings in residential compounds housing Westerners in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The attack comes just hours before Secretary of State Colin Powell's scheduled visit to the country. Powell says the attacks killed other Westerners, injured dozens and has the markings of al Qaeda.
