Saudi Arabia 11 Saudi Princes Detained: Shahjade Mutab’s father is late Shah Abdullah who led the National Guard. He had changed the National Guard into a powerful and respected force and gave it the responsibility of the ruling Saudi family and the security of holy sites and oil and gas sites in Mecca and Medina. Shehzade Mutab was believed to be a contender of the Takht. As the head of the National Guard, the dismissal of Mutab is being seen as a major opponent of the present prince Ahad Shahzade. Shahzade Mohammed became very powerful after his father Shah Salman three years ago after being Takhtanshi. This incident happened three months after Shahzade Mohammad bin Nayef was sacked as successor and Home Minister.
Shah also changed economic and planning affairs minister Abdel Fakeh. In place of him, he has appointed his deputy Mohammad al-Tuwajari.
