Cinemas, Wrestling in Saudi Arabia Are 'Sinful Projects,' Al-Qaeda Says

Vogue cover of Saudi princess behind wheel spurs controversy

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and British Prime Minister Theresa May discussed the importance of oil market stability, May's office said on Sunday.

Addressing Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Amnesty International has said "a PR campaign calling yourself a reformer means nothing if you are arresting peaceful activists simply because they are calling for reforms".

Saudi Arabia for decades has combined its culture and information ministries.

One of the most high-profile activists arrested in recent months, Loujain Al-Hathloul, was previously detained for 73 days in 2014 after trying to drive from the United Arab Emirates to Saudi Arabia.

Abdullatif bin Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman al-Sheikh was named as minister of Islamic affairs, call and guidance.

Bin Salman is also responsible for a massive "anti-corruption" crackdown previous year, which saw over 200 Saudi princes, ministers, and officials arrested in a move that, analysts say, was actually an attempt to consolidate power and extort money from the wealthy.

A Vogue cover photo of a Saudi princess behind the wheel of a red convertible has ignited heated debate, as it follows a slew of arrests of women driving activists.

He has since spearheaded a string of policy changes in ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia, including reinstating cinemas and allowing women to drive.

A bloody military assault dislodged them two weeks later, leaving scores dead on both sides.

According to the Independent, the Yemen-based Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (or AQAP) slammed the current Saudi Arabia regime and sent a warning to Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

Saudi Arabia, an absolute monarchy, will welcome millions of Muslim faithful on their annual pilgrimage to Mecca, Islam's holiest city, come August.

Prince Bader, 33, has risen quickly within the government and already holds several top positions, including governor of a royal commission tasked with developing a historic tourism destination in the country's north. No further details were made available.

Hot debate about the bold spread started due to the fact there was no mention of the jailed women activists who were responsible for bringing the driving ban to the world's attention. The fate of the others remains unclear.
