An apparent suicide bomber died and two security officers were injured in an attack Monday morning near the U.S. consulate in the coastal Saudi city of Jeddah apparently timed to coincide with July 4th celebrations, the State Department confirmed.

The security forces suspected there was something wrong when they saw the man around 2:15 a.m. local time, a spokesman for the interior ministry said in a statement.

“When they attempted to stop him and verify and deal with the situation accordingly he detonated an explosive belt he was wearing."
