Saudi king’s va­ca­tion irks lo­cal res­i­dents

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

Saudi King Sal­man and a 1,000-per­son en­tourage ar­rived Satur­day for a three-week hol­i­day at Val­lau­ris on the French Riviera, where more than 100,000 res­i­dents have pe­ti­tioned against the clo­sure of the public beach out­side his villa.

The clo­sure of the beach for pri­vacy and se­cu­rity rea­sons has stirred up a lo­cal storm. The mayor of Val­lau­ris also wrote to Pres­i­dent François Hol­lande to protest an unau­tho­rized con­crete slab that was poured to in­stall an el­e­va­tor to the villa.
