Saudi crown prince arrives in Tunisia amid protests. The crown prince was received by Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi. Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman arrived Tuesday in Tunisia, where hundreds of people have been protesting the visit over the murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Mohammed’s visit is part of a tour of several Arab countries, his first trip abroad since Khashoggi – a sharp critic of Mohammed – was killed inside a Saudi consulate in Turkey on October 2, triggering global condemnations.
