The Royal Guard forces have arrested 11 princes who gathered at the Royal Palace in Saudi Arabia, where an arrest warrant was issued after they refused to leave and were put in custody in Al-Ha'ir prison in preparation for their trial, Saudi media reported Saturday.

According to the newspaper "Al Sabaq" the 11 Princes gathered at the Palace demanding the abolition of the royal decree, which stopped payments of electricity and water for princes and demanded compensation against sentencing one of their cousins.

It was revealed that after informing them that their demands won't be met they refused to leave the palace, later the Royal Guard were ordered to intervene and arrest them.
