NPR's Michele Kelemen in Riyadh reports on the aftermath of last night's terrorist attacks in the Saudi capital. Three Western housing compounds were hit by suicide bombers. The Saudi government says 20 people were killed, including 7 Americans, and dozens wounded. Nine suspected terrorists were also reported killed. The Saudi government and visiting US Secretary of State Colin Powell blamed al Qaeda for the attacks.
