A day after Saudi Arabia launched a palace purge by arresting several of their fellow royals and officials, a high-ranking prince has died in a helicopter crash.
According to state media, Prince Mansour bin Muqrin — the deputy governor of Asir province –was traveling with several officials when the helicopter crashed. Saudi Arabia, however, did not reveal the cause of the crash.
A short video of the prince and other passengers boarding the helicopter surfaced after the news broke, and it is chilling. The clip shows the group of men climbing into the aircraft.
