Al-waleed bin Talal’s brother, Prince Mashhour bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz, was arrested after he was involved in a fight in a school in Riyadh.

The video of the fight went viral on social media, showing the prince’s group of friends hitting pupils with bats, according to Arabi 21.

Al-waleed bin Talal was arrested earlier this month along with a number of senior officials, princes and ministers by a new anti-corruption committee.

According to New York Times, at least 17 of the people arrested by the committee that is run by Salman required hospital treatment, as many were reportedly beaten and tortured.

Bin Talal’s hotels in Beirut is currently on sale, with several other official’s bank accounts are being closed.

The royal decree stated that the country will not rest until corruption has been eradicated and the corrupt are held accountable, along with whoever harms the country and exploits public money.
