Prince Alwaleed bin Talal hung upside down during torture by Blackwater contractors, claims British newspaper

RIYADH - In a sensational set of revelations put forth by leading British media outlet Daily Mail, it has been disclosed that American mercenaries were torturing the detained Saudi princes including the billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal.

Quoting a source in the country, the report said that Blackwater officials were involved in meting out severe treatment to the Saudi royals, an indication of which was hanging Waleed bin Talal upside down.

The controversial private security company, Blackwater no longer exists under that name and is now Academi, which denies a presence in Saudi Arabia and claimed it did not engage in torture, which according to them was illegal for any U.S. citizen to commit anywhere in the world.

'Constellis through Academi does not now or have we ever provided interrogative services,' they said.

'The Saudi crown prince has also confiscated more than $194 billion from the bank accounts and seized assets of those arrested' claimed the source and added that all the guards in charge were private security because Mohammed Bin Salman did not want Saudi officers to secure the Ritz-Carlton hotel.
