He [Interior Ministry spokesman] said that the investigations revealed that the terrorist who carried out the attack in a parking lot in the vicinity of the Prophet's mosque was Naer Musllam Hammad Al-Nijaidi Al-Balawe [above], a Saudi of 26-years-old with drug abuse history.

That angle, of petty crime and addiction, is an important feature of radicalization in Saudi Arabia even as people (rightly) focus on a Saudi angle to radicalization in other countries.
