Breaking: Reports that #King #Salman of #Saudi_arabia Arabia has died (still unconfirmed), which may explain Crown Prince’s arrests of other royal family members. If true, will pave way for a very different-looking Saudi Arabia.
2)King #Salman ruled since 2015. His son, crown prince Mohammad bin Salman, has already been the de facto ruler of #Saudia_Arabia for years & holds immense power. He is loved by younger citizens but feared by fellow royals. Expect to see resistance by other royal family members
3) MBS is considered a tyrant by many, crushing those who oppose him, as seen with the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi (which he was behind). He has also leaned hard into a deadly military campaign against the #Houthis in #Yemen, fueling a devastating humanitarian disaster.
