Web Desk: The apparent disappearance of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman from the public eye has led several international media outlets to wonder if one of the most powerful men in the kingdom might have been killed during an attempted coup last month.
It is believed that he had been injured in the attack and shifted to an undisclosed location by his guards. For almost one month, where is he, no one knows it officially, as reported by Russian and Iranian media.
As Press TV points out, the official Saudi websites have not released any new photo of bin Salman for several past weeks.
No new photo or video of bin Salman has been released by Saudi authorities since that day, and the prince “was not even seen on camera when new US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made his maiden visit to Riyadh in late April.”
The crown prince was allegedly hit by two bullets during the attack.
Some sources claimed that attack on the royal palace was part of a coup led by Saudi royals who are opposed to King Salman, while Saudi authorities had rejected the claim saying that the incident merely involved palace security guards firing upon a drone which allegedly was flying too close to the premises.
