Not so big surprise. The crown prince seemingly is securing his positions before him becomes king which might happen soon. And there will be surely further purges on royal family and among such officials who could oppose power of future king.

A 4th prince is being reported having been arrested now

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world...bbf_story.html

The original three:
-the king's only living full brother Ahmed bin Abdulaziz
-former crown prince Mohammed bin Nayef
-Mohamed's half brother Nawwaf bin Nayef

and now on Saturday we have the arrest of Nayef bin Ahmed, one of Ahmed's sons. He is a colonel in the army.

Reports are saying even though only 4 are named, up to 20 princes have been arrested in this newest purge. Ahmed's son was the highest ranking military officer arrested.

Thank you for posting these articles. It is disquieting that even the most influential members of the crown prince's own family are no longer spared; the "assurances of safety" he gave apparently meant very little.

From The Guardian:

A former senior diplomat, well versed in Saudi palace intrigue, said the latest purge appeared to be part of a systematic approach to eliminating dissent as Prince Mohammed’s ascension drew near.

Using an Arabic term, “Bani”, to suggest “tribe”, he said: “So he’s gone for the Bani Abdullah, the Bani Fahd and the Bani Sultan. Now it’s the Bani Nayef. There’s still a son of Saud bin Nayef [Mohammed bin Nayef’s brother] at the General Intelligence Presidency. He’ll have to go, too."

The contrasting tone of the linked article on the crown prince's crackdown on allegedly corrupt businessmen was interesting.

The meeting looks tense; it doesn't look good.
