A Saudi prince and four others were detained today in Lebanon in the largest drug bust in the history of the Beirut airport, a security source said.

Saudi prince Abdel Mohsen Bin Walid Bin Abdulaziz and four others were detained by airport security while allegedly “attempting to smuggle about two tons of Captagon pills and some cocaine,” a security source told AFP.

“The smuggling operation is the largest one that has been foiled through the Beirut International Airport,” the source said on condition of anonymity.

The security source said the drugs had been packed into cases that were waiting to be loaded onto a private plane that was headed to Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia's large royal family has had past run-ins with authorities in various countries.

Late last month, a Saudi prince was arrested in Los Angeles for allegedly trying to force a woman to perform oral sex on him at a Beverly Hills mansion.

In 2013, a Saudi princess was accused in Los Angeles of enslaving a Kenyan woman as a housemaid, but the charges were also eventually dropped. (AFP)

    mohideen Tuesday, 27 October 2015 08:33 AM

    Will the oil-weath and the backing of USA, the closest ally of Saudi let the culprit off the hook? My gut feel says this would happen in the name of democracy, good governance, etc. ... .... ....

    This has nothing to do with all Muslims, only shame for the royal family. The crime of one person does not represent others.

    Saudi citizen Tuesday, 27 October 2015 05:36 PM

    I am against the concept that MY country is the worst animal Kingdom in the world.

    This is one of the creations of the US government.Believe me their days are numbered .Do not blame the Muslim community as these jokers do not have a religion only oil and wealth and not forgetting power at present.

    Premalal Monday, 26 October 2015 08:36 PM

    If Obama has any say in the matter, all charges will be dropped.
