Saudi Arabia detains three senior members of royal family

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman

Three senior members of Saudi Arabia's royal family, including the king's brother, have been arrested for unexplained reasons.
Two of the men were among the kingdom's most influential figures.
The detentions are seen as Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman tightens his grip on power.
In 2017 dozens of Saudi royal figures, ministers and businessmen were confined to Riyadh's Ritz-Carlton hotel after the crown prince ordered their arrests.
Mohammed bin Salman, a controversial figure, has been considered the de facto ruler of the kingdom after he was named crown prince by his father in 2016.
