Eleven Saudi Arabian princes and more than 30 ministers were arrested on Saturday in a clampdown on money laundering and corruption.

The arrests were ordered just hours after Saudi King Salman set up an anti-corruption committee, headed by Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman.

Among those arrested was billionaire Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal. The prince owns more than 3o million shares of Twitter stock, having invested $3 million in the tech giant in 2011. He is the second-largest owner of the company, and also holds large stakes in both Citi and NewsCorp, the parent company of the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post. Bin Talal frequently appears on CNBC, and has been known to criticize President Donald J. Trump.
