Conflicting reports coming out of Saudi Arabia. A coup is plausible, given the opposition of Wahhabi hardliners to the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s attempts to modernize the Kingdom a bit. But there doesn’t seem to be a coup taking place, at least as far as we know now.

There is definitely fighting going on around the Palace of the Saudi King.
Some reports suggest a Palace coup.
But some sources claiming attack by Yemeni Houthis.
Situation is unclear….its night time and NO official reports are possible.
All sources are Saudis so far..
