Bursts of gunfire were suddenly heard in the skies of Riyadh on Saturday night (April 21, 2018), which filled the atmosphere with panic and uncertainty, sparking fears that an armed coup was underway in Saudi Arabia. Initially, the official Saudi Press Agency said nothing about the incident, but some social media websites reported that the area near the sprawling royal palace in Riyadh rang with firing.

Later, a statement published by the official press agency said that the King was not present at the palace during the incident, but most sources confirmed that he and his son were taken away from the palace owing to danger.
