King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has prevented a Saudi prince from taking four million square meters plot of land, Saudi daily Okaz reported.

One of the “princes from the Saudi royal family claimed to have the right to the plot of land in Taif, however he failed to show any documents proving ownership” the newspaper said.

However, it was later discovered that the land belonged to the government, which King Salman stressed needed to be preserved, sources to Okaz said.
