USA mercenaries are allegedly torturing Saudi royals and businessmen arrested during the anti-corruption purge ordered by Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman.

"They are beating them, torturing them, slapping them, insulting them".

Former spy chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan as well as billionaire prince and the king's nephew Waleed bin Talal are among the notable businessmen and royals incarcerated.

"Outside the hotels where they are being detained you see the armoured vehicles of the Saudi special forces. But inside, it's a private security company".

The report that has raised eyebrows of political analysts continued that the officials transferred all the guys from Abu Dhabi who were now in-charge of everything.

On the other hand, an Arab website says that as many as 17 detainees were shifted the hospital as they had needed medical treatment.

The source said the Crown Prince is conducting some of the interrogations by himself, treating the detained people "nicely".

"The prisoners are slapped, insulted, hung up, tortured" the source disclosed.

American private security contractors, previously known as Blackwater - now operating under the name Academi - have been put in charge of interrogation.

Blackwater rose to prominence during the Iraq war when the private security company received lucrative USA government contracts and came under scrutiny when several employees were involved in the shooting deaths of 14 civilians in Baghdad in 2007.

We will remind, in the beginning of November in Saudi Arabia have arrested 11 princes and about three dozen government representatives and business elite of the country. As evidence is the fact that the hotel where the arrested princes, just surrounded by the secret services of the country.

DailyMail.com's source said MBS initially invited bin Talal to a meeting at his Al Yamamah palace, then sent officers to arrest him the night before the meeting.

"He went to the meeting and never came back", said a second insider who has connections to some of those who were detained. Clarifies that private military had no contact on this issue with the official Saudi authorities, and private individuals.

A high-profile Saudi whistleblower twitter account, @ Ahdjadid also said King Salman has brought in at least 150 Blackwater guards.
