Saudi crown prince jokes about Lebanese PM Hariri at investment conference

RIYADH, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman joked about allegations that Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri was detained in the kingdom last year, saying he would leave after attending an investment conference.

“Prime Minister Saad is staying in the kingdom for two days so I hope you don’t spread rumours that he was kidnapped,” he said during a panel discussion at the event. (Writing by Michael Georgy Editing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg)
