Saudi Arabia's assistant interior minister has survived an assassination attempt in Jeddah.
Prince Muhammed bin Nayef is also a top security official involved in the Kingdom's aggressive anti-terrorism campaign.
The official Saudi news agency says the Prince was meeting with Ramadan well-wishers on Thursday evening when a man blew himself up.
Television footage later showed the prince, apparently suffering from minor injuries, meeting with King Abdullah and explaining what happened.
Reports indicate the suicide bomber was a wanted militant who insisted on meeting the prince to give himself up.
He was apparently carrying a mobile phone and tripped before the meeting, accidentally detonating the bomb.
