  • Protests greet Saudi Crown Prince Tunisia visit

Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi told Al Arabiya News Channel in the presence of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman that the relations between the two countries are historical. However, the Trump administration has been reluctant to further punish the Saudi government, citing alliance significance and Saudi Arabia's purchase of USA military equipment. Some burned a Saudi Arabian flag and others brandished saws.

He was killed and reportedly dismembered in what Saudi Arabia said was a "rogue" operation.

"The Saudi media will focus on the official reception", Khashan said.

Protesters also called for an end to the Saudi-led military campaign in neighbouring Yemen, which was launched by Prince Mohammed in his role as defence minister in 2015.

A youth activist group that criticizes Saudi limits on women's rights was among those demonstrating Tuesday.

Prince Mohammed's current tour comes ahead of his participation in the G20 summit in Argentina, starting on Friday.

The crown prince departed Tunisia on Tuesday evening after a visit of several hours, Al Arabiya television said, and is expected to fly on to a G20 summit in Argentina.

Moreover, the importance of coordination, especially among the Arab Anti-Terror Quartet, was stressed as being among the goals achieved by the visit of the crown prince to Egypt - his third stop after the UAE and Bahrain.

Just as Saudi Arabia is one of the biggest supporters of Egypt and its people, so Egypt has been the biggest supporter of the Kingdom, and of its policies and steps toward an enlightened future.

The crown prince last visited Egypt in March to sign economic agreements, including those pertaining to a bridge between the Sinai and the Saudi mainland, a joint economic zone, and efforts to join the electricity grids of both countries.

The killing of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and a critic of the crown prince, at Riyadh's consulate in Istanbul on October 2 has frayed Saudi Arabia's relations with the West and tarnished Prince Mohammed's image overseas. "We don't want the money of a regime whose hands are stained with blood".

The complaint also accuses the crown prince and Saudi government of torture of Saudi citizens. It read: "No to the pollution of the Tunisian revolution".

They blamed him for the brutal killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi intelligence agents at Riyadh's consulate in Istanbul last month.

In its petition, HRW highlighted almost 90 "indiscriminate and disproportionate airstrikes on civilians" in which the USA -backed Saudi coalition has "hit homes, markets, hospitals, schools and mosques" across Yemen. It's unclear whether Tunisian authorities will take action on the complaints.
