Cairo: Two people were killed in a fight in which firearms were used in a Saudi city near the border with Kuwait, local media reported.

Five others were injured in the fight that erupted in the city of Al Khafji in north-eastern Saudi Arabia, Al Ekhbariya television said.

Police arrested those involved in the fight, the television added.

Local police said the violence was due to an unspecified dispute among the fighters whose ages ranged between 20 and 40.

Last week, police said they had arrested seven Saudi citizens and an expatriate for involvement in another mass brawl in the Eastern Province after online footage showed a person driving a car and deliberately ramming into a crowd.
