3:09 am
a group that is said to include the owner of the n.b.c. television network as well as several other senior princes observers say the crackdown has allowed in someone to do far more than simply consolidate power i think there are two things here it's about money because the saudi. government is facing financial difficulties because of the collapse of the oil prices over the past few years. when mr man is having very ambitious economic plan actually to reform the kingdom so he needs the cash money in order to carry on with this project but this is not the only issue the other issue in my opinion here is that he's trying to create a popular base of support for him because all these people are in fact caught up. in tahrir his farm hold stakes in companies like twitter citi group an apple is estimated to be worth seventeen. billion dollars his release could potentially
3:10 am
