Prince Charles and PM David Cameron's Visit to Saudi Met Heavy Criticisms
Prince Charles and Prime Minister David Cameron flew to Saudi Arabia to pay respects to the late King Abdullah, who died last week. However, the two's action met with heavy criticisms due the protests over Saudi Arabia's "appalling human rights record." There were also those who questioned why the British flag was lowered to half-mast, which many deemed unnecessary, given that the Saudis have not even lowered their own flag. The Prince of Wales and the Prime Minister are slated to meet with the new king, Salman.
