Eleven princes have been detained in an anti-corruption sweep in Saudi Arabia, under the direction of the Crown Prince.

Nearly a dozen princes and tens of prominent businessmen and officials were dismissed and detained in Saudi Arabia in an investigation by a new anti-corruption committee headed by Crown Prince Muhammed bin Salman.

The allegations against the detained reportedly include money laundering, bribery, extorting officials and taking advantage of public office for personal gain.
