BBC News - Saudi prince wins libel damages over Independent story
The newspaper accepted the "order" it reported was in fact a fake.
Its publishers, Independent Print Ltd, also offered "sincere apologies" to Prince Nayef Bin Abdul-Aziz al-Saud at London's High Court.

Gunman killed near Saudi prince's palace - Middle East - Al Jazeera English
Gunman killed at Saudi prince's palace: source | MSN Arabia News

Security forces shot dead a gunman as he opened fire on the Jeddah palace of Saudi Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz early on Saturday, said a source close to the government.
Another man was arrested during the attack in which "two men opened fire after midnight on the Qasr Shateh residence of Prince Nayef (and) the security forces retaliated, killing one of them," the source told AFP.
The men, who were only identified as members of the Zahrani family, were "under the influence of drugs" and one of them had a "small handgun".

Brezhnev in the Hejaz | The National Interest
The Saudi royal family is afraid. Very, very afraid. A crisis of leadership is brewing.
The king is ailing and his successor, Crown Prince Sultan, is in even worse health. Their hard-line brother, Prince Nayef bin Abdel Aziz, is set to take the throne.
One of the last absolute monarchies, the Saudi family seems to represent all that the Arab Spring is fighting against: closed societies with unequal wealth distribution; repressed minorities living within manufactured boundaries; strong Islamist sympathies across its lands; a latent Sunni-Shia power struggle embedded in the country’s fabric—not to mention a string of surrounding states struggling to stave off revolutions that could easily have a contagion effect.

Interesting, specially that he's in line of succession to the throne!
And, thanks Kasumi for all the articles.

Wealth and Privileges of Saudi Princes

In late 1960s King Faisal issued a decree that every inch land of the country that was not officially registered to a private individual belonged to the Saudi royal family. Thus the entire country is treated as private property of the Royal family.
The King distributed much of the land to royal family members. Princes sold some of the land back to the state and some to the public, but most they kept for themselves. Inside major cities or out in the remote desert, the country's vast landmass remains private property of the Princes now numbering over 5000.
They also treat entire Saudi oil revenues as their private wealth. Every Prince or princess is entitled to a monthly salary starting the date of his/her birth. Minimum monthly salary for the prince is US$ 150K while princess is US$ 50K, which starts on the moment of their birth and continues up to their 11th birthday. Then the salary amount is re-adjusted with higher amount.
[...]
And what is the current size of Saudi royal family? According to information, up to April 1995, Prince Saud married into more than 30 tribes with 42 sons and 125 daughters. It was claimed that, the prince had married at least 1,400 women.
The size of the royal family now should be somewhere above 50,000 members. Almost all the male members of the Saudi royals are polygamists. It will be totally difficult to identify even a couple of princes in the Saudi royal family, who has just one wife and 5-6 children. In most nominal cases, it will be 10-15 wives with at least 3-35 kids. - Full article

Hello all, I would like to know exactly the same thing as tzouvar is asking. I translated some answers from an Arabic forum "http://humanf.org:8686/vb/showthread.php?t=99209" and some of them said he is a "prince" like 80.000 others, so no direct royal blood...I don't know but some of them said this is a thief?? I can't translate it very well using google translate, please help us find something meaningful.
Thank you.
