Saudi Arabia announced Thursday it has detained 201 people as part of a sweeping probe, estimating that $100 billion has been misused through embezzlement and corruption in the past decades.
Saudi Atty. Gen. Saud Mojeb said in a statement that 208 people had been called in for questioning since Saturday evening, and that seven people were released without charge, leaving 201 people still in detention.
Expect heads to roll in Riyadh — literally.
