DAMASCUS, Syria. The now former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri denied the reports of his arrest.

According to the Saudi news agency, Hariri met with the ruling king of the Saudi regime, Salman bin Abdul Aziz, on Monday.

During the meeting, the two reportedly reviewed the latest developments in Lebanon. 

On Saturday, Hariri while visiting the Saudi capital city of Riyadh, publicly announced his resignation, citing possible attempts on his life, as well as the growing influence of Hezbollah and Iran in the region as the main reasons behind his decision.

Merely hours after his sudden resignation, the Saudi regime began with series of arrests of several Suadi princes (Al Waleed bin Talal including) and high-ranking  officials, made within the scope of an anti-corruption campaign, launched by the newly formed anti-corruption committee, headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

It is possible that Hariri was indeed forced to resign and could be under house arrest at the moment.

Some unverified sources claim he is currently in the royal palace.
