AP , Thursday 11 Feb 2016

State television in Saudi Arabia says a teacher has shot dead six colleagues in the kingdom's south.

The station reported the shooting Thursday in a post on Twitter. It posted a still photograph that showed ambulances gathered outside of a building in Jazan province.

It did not offer a motive for the shooting.

Mass shootings are rare in the kingdom. Saudi Arabia has faced a series of recent attacks by Islamic State militants (ISIS).
