Director General of public relations and information at the Ministry of Interior Maj. Gen. Mohammed bin Abdullah Al-Maraoul said that the ministry had received a report from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the arrest of several Saudi citizens by the authorities at Caracas International Airport in Venezuela due to the unstable internal situation in the country.
