‘Anti-Corruption Push’: Dozens of Saudi royals detained unexpectedly

Saudi Arabia has detained dozens of royal figures and ministers – in what it calls Phase One of its ‘anti-corruption push’ – 11 princes, 4 minister and many ex-ministers were detained by the Saudi anti-corruption body.

The US president has expressed approval for the move despite the fact that one of his former business partners was reportedly among those detained.
