Trump’s apparent sympathy for the Saudi-led blockade marks a dramatic turnaround from his position two weeks ago when he met the Qatari emir in Riyadh, saying in a photocall “we are friends we have been friends for a long time now indirectly”, adding “our relationship is extremely good”.

He said it was an honour to be with the emir and welcomed the fact that Qatar was planning to purchase “some beautiful US military equipment” which would mean jobs and security in the US.

 

who even knows what this guy's core beliefs are

The arrest of dozens of Saudi royal figures, ministers and businessmen is just the start of an anti-corruption drive, the attorney general says.

Sheikh Saud Al Mojeb issued a statement describing the detentions as "merely the start of a vital process to root out corruption wherever it exists".

News of a major purge of Saudi Arabia's business and political leadership emerged on Sunday.

It is seen as bolstering the power of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

An anti-corruption body led by the crown prince, 32, ordered the detentions of 11 princes, four ministers and dozens of ex-ministers. Internationally known billionaire businessman Al-Waleed bin Talal was reported to be among those held.Sheikh Saud Al Mojeb's statement on the progress of the investigation spoke of "phase one" being complete.

"A great deal of evidence has already been gathered, and detailed questioning has taken place," it continued.

"All those suspected to date, will have full access to legal resources, and the trials will be held in a timely and open manner for all concerned."

The update on the corruption probe came as the authorities continue to investigate a helicopter crash near Saudi Arabia's border with Yemen.

Prince Mansour bin Muqrin, the deputy governor of Asir province, was returning from an inspection tour when his aircraft came down near Abha late on Sunday.

The cause of the crash is not clear.

Prince Mansour was the son of Prince Muqrin bin Abdulaziz, a former intelligence chief who was crown prince between January and April 2015, when he was pushed aside by Prince Mohammed's father, King Salman, now 81.

The official Saudi Press Agency said the prince and seven provincial officials had been touring coastal projects west of the city of Abha.

State news channel al-Ikhbariya posted on Twitter photographs of the wreckage and a video showing the prince and his companions using the helicopter hours before their deaths.

I heard he's (the crown prince) doing a a lot to appease america/trump right now as he's trying to move the economy from being so heavily reliant on oil, which would benefit the poorer people for sure.

castrating qatar after the trump visit, the arms deal, definitely plausible.

Suspected militants have launched a bomb and gun attack on a mosque in Egypt's North Sinai province, killing at least 184 people, state media say.

Witnesses say the al-Rawda mosque in the town of Bir al-Abed, near al-Arish, was targeted during Friday prayers.

Local police said men in four off-road vehicles opened fire on worshippers, AP reported.

Egypt has been fighting an Islamist insurgency in the region, which has intensified since 2013.

There have been regular attacks blamed on militants on the Sinai peninsula, but this is the deadliest assault of its kind.

Pictures from the scene show rows of bloodied victims inside the mosque. At least 125 people were also wounded, reports say.

Famm

even trump has come out and Said he’s probably dead. 

America  got way too many interests with the Saudis to do anything. Expecting a massive smear campaign against  khashoggi in the coming days, links to terrorism etc.

They weren't expecting this much coverage, that's why they were probably brazen with it.

It's jokes, Qatar is much richer than Saudi Arabia, so not sure why he's backing them so much.

Qatar will eventually run out of oil where as Saudi will always have religious tourism so they have a currently have a better long term plan.
