At least a dozen people are understood to be wounded after a suicide bombing in a mosque in Najran, near the border with Yemen.

At least three people were killed and a dozen wounded on Monday at a bombing in a mosque in Saudi Arabia's southern Najran region bordering Yemen, a Saudi news channel has reported.

The explosion targeted worshippers at the city's Mashhad mosque, in the southwest district, al-Arabiya reported.

Few details about the attack are yet available, however the Islamic State group has been associated with a string of attacks against Shia mosques in the kingdom over the past year.
