Simon Cumbers, BBC
6 June 2004

Two journalists working for the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) were shot in Riyadh on 6 June 2004.

Irish cameraman Simon Cumbers, 36, was killed in the attack, believed carried out by Islamist militants, and his British colleague Frank Gardner, 42, was seriously injured.

A Western diplomat said that Simon Cumbers and Frank Gardner had been travelling in a car with a Saudi information ministry "minder". Gunmen opened fire as they were filming in a street in the al-Suwaydi district close to the home of Ibrahim al-Raies, a militant killed by Saudi security forces in December 2003.
