Saudi Prince Mansour bin Muqrin and seven other people were killed in a helicopter crash near the country’s border with war-torn Yemen, it was reported. Chilling footage shows passengers boarding the aircraft shortly before it went down and disappeared from radar.
Everyone on board – including senior government officials and a mayor – died in the crash, local media reported. This comes a day after Yemen fired a missile at Saudi Arabia which was intercepted. Following the attack, Saudi Arabia arrested 11 princes in an anti-corruption purge.
