Al-Qaeda Warns Saudi Arabian Prince After WWE Greatest Royal Rumble

The royal orders set up a new Ministry of Culture, extracting it from the information ministry as part of a drive to capture more Saudi leisure spending at home amid a budget deficit caused by low oil prices.

Bin Salman is also responsible for a massive "anti-corruption" crackdown a year ago, which saw over 200 Saudi princes, ministers, and officials arrested in a move that, analysts say, was actually an attempt to consolidate power and extort money from the wealthy.

In relation to the reforms, Princess Hafya told Vogue: "In our country, there are some conservatives who fear change".

Saudi has always denied that any coup attempt took place, saying videos of heavy gunfire at the palace was guards shooting down a civilian drone.

The powerful Prince Mohammed has consolidated his grip on power since sidelining his cousin as crown prince last June.

AQAP's strictures against the prince are as political as they are ideological.

Among other appointments, Abdel Latif Al Alsheikh was named as minister of Islamic affairs. He had served in the post for almost 20 years until 2014, was replaced for three months and then re-appointed in 2015. Saudi Arabia has threatened military action against Qatar if it goes ahead and acquires the air defence missile system.

Tensions between Saudi Arabia and Qatar aggravated in June 2017, when the former, alongside the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, cut diplomatic ties with Doha, blaming it for destabilizing the region by supporting Islamist groups. Human rights groups and activists had identified them as women's rights activists. They are descendants of Sheikh Mohammed Ibn Abdul-Wahhab, whose ultraconservative teachings of Islam in the 18th century are widely referred to as "Wahhabism" in his name. He is a well-known Saudi businessman. He previously served as the chairman of a media conglomerate that is controlled by King Salman's branch of the family, but resigned to become minister. He renamed three other reserves after his late father, King Abdulaziz, himself, and his son, the crown prince.
