DUBAI (Reuters) - Senior Saudi Prince Miteb bin Abdullah, once seen as a contender to the throne, has been freed after more than three weeks in detention, a royal family member said on Tuesday on social media.

"Almighty, thanks be to you..." wrote Abeer bint Khaled bin Abdullah, a royal family member in a posting on her Twitter account. Posting an apparent file photo of Prince Miteb, she added: "May God give you long life, long life full of health, and keep you for us."
