King Salman: The man in charge of the ‘most dangerous man in the world’

 King Salman was quick to shock the old order and appoint his favourite son, Prince Mohammed bin Salman (31?) – a controversial figure who has been described as “the most dangerous man in the world” – as both defence minister and deputy crown prince when he was 29.

When he came to the throne exactly a year ago, King Salman of Saudi Arabia was expected to continue to provide the relative stability which characterised the rule of his half-brother, King Abdullah.

Instead, the reign of Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, 80, has been marked by wars in Yemen and Syria, an ongoing feud with Iran and mass executions

Since then, the father and son’s power has dramatically increased – as have the criticisms of the human rights abuses they preside over.

These are the reasons for the ongoing controversy surrounding King Salman’s rule:
