Saudi Arabia: arrest warrant against the prince Khaled bin Sultan


A palace coup led by Prince Khaled bin Sultan (photo), was apparently in the making in Saudi Arabia. To avert it, it is said that King Abdullah dismissed the Defense Deputy Minister (April 20) and the Chief of Defence Staff (May 10).

An arrest warrant against Prince Khaled bin Sultan was reportedly signed by the king upon his sudden return from Morocco, Sunday, June 16, 2013.
