Saudi prince flex­ing mus­cle

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - NEWS RECAP -

More than 200 peo­ple have been sum­moned for ques­tion­ing, and most are still de­tained, in a wide-rang­ing crack­down that Saudi Ara­bia says is aimed at root­ing out cor­rup­tion and re­claim­ing em­bez­zled funds, the gov­ern­ment said Thurs­day. But crit­ics see the de­ten­tions as an ef­fort by the Saudi crown prince, Mo­hammed bin Sal­man, to neu­tral­ize those could chal­lenge his rule.
