🇸🇦 Saudi billionaire Alwaleed 'released' from detention

One of the world's richest men, billionaire Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has been released from detention, according to family sources speaking to the Reuters News Agency.

He's been held in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Riyadh since November, along with about 200 others accused of corruption.

The Saudi attorney general says many have been released, after paying settlements of billions of dollars.
