BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – Saudi Arabia has relieved ‘Adel Al-Jubeir from his duties as Foreign Minister after a new cabinet reshuffling was announced by the Gulf kingdom earlier today.

According to a press statement from Riyadh, Al-Jubeir has been moved from Foreign Minister to Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, effective immediately.

Former Finance Minister Ibrahim Al-Assaf has been named as the new Foreign Minister, becoming only the second non-royal family member to attain this position.

Al-Assaf was previously arrested by the Saudi regime during a state-wide corruption purge; however, he was later released after he was innocent of any wrongdoings.
