Diplo­matic pa­pers leaked

Los Angeles Times - - THE WORLD -

At the Saudi Em­bassy in Tehran, diplo­mats talked about air­ing the griev­ances of dis­en­chanted youths us­ing Face­book and Twit­ter. At the em­bassy in Khartoum, they re­ported on Iran’s mil­i­tary aid to Su­dan.

Mean­while the Saudi mis­sion in Geneva was deal­ing with a mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar limo bill racked up by a Saudi princess.

The diplo­matic doc­u­ments pub­lished by Wik­iLeaks are the first batch of what the group says will be a much larger re­lease, but they’ve al­ready pro­vided an un­usual level of in­sight on the day-to-day of Saudi diplo­macy, a snap­shot of the lav­ish spend­ing habits of se­nior roy­als and the po­lit­i­cal in­trigue per­co­lat­ing across the Mid­dle East.
