The world is a very scary place these days. There are wars all over the place and the fact that people still think that President Donald Trump has something to do with it is outrageous. But we are seeing what a good American leader can do for not just America, but the entire world. That is why he is over there in Asia right now, making sure that American values are spread around the world. But lost in the midst of all of the craziness that has been happening in the United States, there is some sad news from Saudi Arabia.
A helicopter that was carrying Saudi government officials has crashed in the Asir Region of the southwestern part of the country, the media reported. This is breaking news and more and more details will come in as we get them.
Prince Mansour bin Muqrin, who serves as the deputy governor of the Asir region, as well as many senior regional government officials were reported to have died in the crash, according to the source Al Arabiya.
This crash got the attention of quite a few people on Twitter who commented on it. It is obviously a very sad day for those involved.

The prince looked to be one of the men that were in line for the throne. All of those killed were very influential people in the government. It will be interesting to see how this will impact the nation as a whole moving forward.
Prince Mansour bin Muqrin is the son of Prince Muqrin al-Saud, the former the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, and is also a member of the House of Saud, as well as an adviser at the court of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.
So obviously there are lots of ties to the government in this crash and it will have an enormous impact on how people will react. The Saudi princes always have been a huge part of the government over there. So a death is a very big deal.
What do you think will come of this crash. Do you think there was foul play?
