DUBAI (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia shut down entry and exit into the Jeddah governorate and brought forward a curfew there to begin at 3 p.m. local time (1200 GMT), state news agency SPA said on Sunday.

The curfew in Jeddah previously began at 7 p.m. Saudi Arabia applied the same measures to Riyadh, Mecca and Medina last week.
