"His Royal Drugs," reads Tuesday's front page of Lebanese Arabic-language daily Al-Akhbar, one day after a Saudi prince and four others were arrested at the Beirut airport after authorities found more than two tons of illegal drugs on a Saudi-bound private jet.
Prince Abdel Mohsen Bin Walid Bin Abdulaziz was among those detained by airport security for attempting to smuggle about two tons of amphetamine pills (pictured) and some cocaine, divided between 24 parcels and eight large travel bags, and worth an estimated $110 million, Al-Akhbar reports.
