The Guardian reports, ‘A senior Saudi prince has launched an unprecedented call for change in the country’s leadership, as it faces its biggest challenge in years in the form of war, plummeting oil prices and criticism of its management of Mecca, scene of last week’s hajj tragedy.

The prince, who is not named for security reasons, wrote two letters earlier this month calling for the king to be removed. click here.
