Tunisians gather in central Tunis in protest of Saudi Salman’s visit
Dozens of protesters rallied in central Tunis on Monday to decry Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s scheduled visit.
Prince Mohammed, commonly known by his initials MBS, is expected to arrive in Tunisia on Tuesday afternoon as part of a regional tour as he makes his way to the G20 summit set to take place in Argentina at the end of the month.
It is also MBS’s first overseas tour after the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul two months ago. The murder – widely seen as orchestrated by the crown prince – created an international firestorm against Saudi Arabia that continues to reverberate.
