Riyadh: Saudi Arabia has tightened security amid terror threats mainly to the capital city of Riyadh, state-run media reported on Monday.

According to the Arabic daily Al-Hayat, the heightened security measures cover markets, commercial malls and oil establishments in Riyadh, Xinhua news agency reported.
