Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia has apparently had several senior princes of the royal house placed under arrest.  They are Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, the younger full brother of King Salman who was particularly close to the King and seen as a counterweight to the increasingly powerful Crown Prince.  Also arrested was Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the former Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, nephew of the King, who was displaced by the current Crown Prince and a powerful figure in the extended al Saud family.  The third royal arrested is Prince Nawaf bin Nayef, brother of Prince Mohammed bin Nayef.  Most recently it is being reported that Prince Nayef bin Ahmed, son of Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz has also been arrested.

Nothing particular to say about the Byzantine goings-on in Saudi Arabia, but good to see you back again. It's been a little while, and I was getting sincerely worried that our resident troll might have driven you away altogether.

I was very put out for a while, but I'm back.  Thank you Peter.
