Lebanon Arrests, Interrogates Saudi Prince for Carrying Drugs

Abd al-Muhsen bin Walid bin Abd al-Aziz Al Saud was detained on Monday at the Rafik Hariri International Airport in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, while in possession of 24 bags and eight suitcases full of narcotics.

The Saudi prince was arrested along with four other individuals.

They were charged with attempting to smuggle around two tons of Captagon pills on their private jet to Saudi Arabia.

Police had launched an investigation into the smuggling case.

Captagon pills had "the typical effects of a stimulant" and produce "a kind of euphoria - you're talkative, you don't sleep, you don't eat, you're energetic," according to Lebanese psychiatrist Ramzi Haddad.

The drugs are reportedly the Takfiri "ISIL" militants' favorite narcotics.
