The head of the private office for the crown prince of Saudi Arabia has put an end to speculations around Mohammad bin Salman's absence by posting a photo of the royal with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi on Friday.
"A friendly meeting continues among brothers," Bader Al-Asaker wrote in a tweet accompanying the photo.

Iranian media has been speculating that the crown prince may have died in the "coup attempt" at the Saudi royal palace on April 21. A Saudi official later said that a toy drone flying without an authorization was shot down outside the palace, refuting rumors of a coup.
The 32-year-old leader ousted his older cousin as crown prince last summer in a palace coup and then led the so-called anti-corruption purge in the country, detaining dozens of members of the royal family and senior officials.
