Saudi arrests 11 protesting princes
 Saudi Arabia authorities have arrested 11 princes after they staged a protest for non-payment of their electricity and water bills, according to media reports in the kingdom.


Members of the royal family were demonstrating against the government's decision to not pay their utility bills after they were ordered to leave the palace in Riyadh, the capital, according to the Okaz newspaper in a report by Bloomberg.

The princes were sent to Ha'ir prison, a maximum-security facility south of Riyadh, according to the Saudi news website Sabq in an Al Jazeera report.
