ISIS threatened to destroy Saudi Arabian prisons holding extremists after Riyadh's execution of 47 people including 43 convicted Al-Qaeda militants.The militant group, which has claimed responsibility for attacks in the kingdom and stepped up operations in neighboring Yemen, singled out the al-Ha'ir and Tarfiya prisons where many Al-Qaeda and ISIS supporters have been detained. ISIS has claimed responsibility for a series of bombings and shootings in Saudi Arabia since Nov. 2014 that have killed more than 50 people, most of them Shiites but also more than 15 members of the security forces.
