Saudi Arabia releases two princes after graft probe

Saudi Arabia has released two sons of the late king Abdullah two months after they were detained in a sweeping anti-corruption purge, a source close to the government said yesterday, The Straits Times reported.

"They have been released," the source said a day after a family member posted photos of Prince Faisal bin Abdullah, a former head of the Saudi Red Crescent, and Prince Mashal bin Abdullah, a previous governor of Mecca, on Twitter.

Prince Turki bin Abdullah was the only brother left in detention, the source said, without adding if his brothers had reached a cash settlement to be released.
