by Brandon Desmond


Eight people have been killed in a helicopter crash near the Yemen border November 5th, according to the BBC.

Prince Mansour bin Muqin, the deputy governor of Asir province, was out on an inspection tour when his aircraft crashed. The helicopter went down near Abha.

The event occurred hours after a change in the kingdom’s political leadership.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the detentions of dozens of people. Among them were 11 princes, four ministers, and dozens of ex-ministers. This move is being looked at by analysts as an attempt to cement the power to the heir of the throne.
