Senior Saudi Prince Released From Detention

Senior Saudi prince and former head of the National Guard, Miteb bin Abdullah, has been released after more than three weeks in detention on allegations of corruption.

Miteb, 65, was among dozens of other royal family members, ministers, and top businessmen, who were detained earlier this month in what the kingdom called an "anti-corruption purge".

Among those detained are 11 princes, four ministers and several former ministers, in an unprecedented crackdown that has shaken the kingdom.

The allegations against them include money laundering, bribery, extorting officials, but the accusations have not been independently verified.
