Hundreds Will Die Within a Week to Saudi Blockade — Yemen Doctors

The blockade is preventing humanitarian aid from reaching civilians in Yemen

Wealthy Saudi individuals, fearful that they could be implicated in the probe, have been dumping stocks to raise cash, in some cases intending to move the money out of the country, fund managers said.

After Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman launched a crackdown on former government ministers, prominent businessmen and members of the royal family accused wrongdoing are being held captive as part of a wide-ranging anti-corruption campaign.

The Saudi stock index spent most of the day lower before closing 0.3 per cent higher.

Saudi Arabia's naval blockade of Yemen, in place since the 2015 invasion, has often nominally allowed humanitarian shipments.

In June 2017, Saudi Arabia led coalition (UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, and Mauritania) triggered a diplomatic crisis with Qatar. The Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance is controlled by moderate President Hassan Rouhani's administration. "It will be the largest famine the world has seen for many decades, with millions of victims".

Under his command, Saudi Arabia has issued several warnings to Iran, its biggest regional foe and issued war warnings.

Saudi Arabia's benchmark stock index, Tadawul, does not seem to have been significantly impacted by the events of the last week, with losses and gains well within the bounds of everyday trading.

Prince Mohammed, who is widely known in Saudi Arabia by his initials MbS, had said openly in interviews that he would investigate the kingdom's endemic corruption and would not hesitate to go after top officials. The question now, for hopeful investors, is whether the Crown Prince follows his corruption crackdown by opening up an economy dominated by plutocrats and royal cronies. Since last weekend, around 200 people have been arrested. In the past month, however, the blockade has tightened dramatically, and even vital medications and food are virtually impossible to import. Saudi Arabia's allies like Bahrain, Kuwait have also followed suit. "Due to the situation in the Republic of Lebanon, the kingdom asks its nationals visiting or living in Lebanon to leave as soon as possible, and advises its citizens not to travel there", the source said.

"The United States strongly supports the legitimate institutions in the Lebanese state", Nauert said.

Despite Hariri's surprise resignation announcement on Saturday, the official referred to him as the Prime Minister.

The prince has also drawn up a blueprint to wean Saudi Arabia off its dependence on oil and its subjects off state subsidies and government jobs.

Speaking about the nuclear deal, Kharrazi said the path that resulted in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) would have been pursued regardless of who won the 2013 presidential elections in Iran.

To the extent it backs Prince Salman's gambles, the Trump administration is needlessly risking U.S. equities in the Middle East. Rather than indulge the young ruler, it ought to be pushing to curb his excesses, both at home and abroad.

Council members reiterated the need for the coalition and the Houthis "to provide full, safe, rapid and unhindered access for humanitarian supplies and U.N. personnel to the population of all affected governorates, including by air, land and sea".

The former Iranian diplomat added that the Rouhani administration has enjoyed a good working relationship with the head of the Quds Force, Qasem Soleimani.
