Saudi officer held under 'anti-corruption crackdown' died of broken neck

The hugely influential Saudi prince is visiting Egypt, Britain and the United States as part of a long foreign trip, his first as crown prince.

The travel ban has led the prince into deactivating his Twitter account, where he has regularly commented on events in the past, according to the report.

Saudi Arabia has laid out plans for Aramco's dual listing on the Saudi stock market and an global exchange, with markets in New York, London and Hong Kong vying for the offering.

Also, Saudi Arabia raked in almost $107 billion from the almost three-month old crackdown, which continues to be shrouded in mystery as the Saudi government has not released any details of the high-profile arrests and ensuing settlements.

Meanwhile, fresh revelations show that prisoners caught up in the campaign were mistreated.

One individual, Maj. Gen. Ali al-Qahtani of the Saudi National Guard, reportedly died in custody with "a neck that appeared twisted, a badly swollen body and other signs of abuse".

But he was a top aide to Prince Turki bin Abdullah, a son of the late King Abdullah and a former governor of Riyadh, and the interrogators may have been pressing the general for information about his boss, Prince Turki.

Relatives of the captives said that some of the detainees were deprived of sleep, roughed up and interrogated with their heads covered while the government pressured them to sign over large assets.
