Wichita State Student Killed In Terror Attack

Associated Press - May 30, 2015 3:05 pm

Wichita State University says one of its students was among four people killed in a suicide bomb attack outside a Shiite mosque in Saudi Arabia.

The university says 22-year-old Abduljaleel Alarbash, an undergraduate student, had returned to Saudi Arabia to get married and was scheduled to return to Wichita for classes this fall.

He was killed Friday when a suicide bomber blew himself up in the parking lot of a Shiite mosque in the city of Dammam. It was the second such attack in as many weeks claimed by the Islamic State group.

Alarbash was among a group of young men who intercepted the attacker outside the mosque, saving lives.

Wichita State is holding a service June 5 to honor Alarbash.
