The Saudi Crown Prince's trip to several African countries is prompting opposition and popular protests in these countries.

Iran Press/ Africa: Citizens, civil society activists and political groups protested the visit of the "Mohammad Bin Salman" to Egypt and Tunisia, Iran Press News Agency reported.

Many Egyptian journalists criticizing Bin Salman's visit to the country said that "his place is in a court of law, not in Egypt".

Meanwhile, Tunisian activists are calling for protests over the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi when Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman visits next week.

The crown prince on Thursday began a tour of several Arab countries in the United Arab Emirates, his first trip abroad since the murder, which has strained Saudi Arabia's ties with the West and battered his image abroad.

A group of 50 lawyers has been tasked by journalists, bloggers and human right activists to lodge a complaint in the Tunisian courts to oppose the visit, lawyer Nizar Boujlel said.

Khashoggi, 59, an outspoken critic of Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, disappeared after he entered the Saudi diplomatic mission in the Turkish city on October 2 to complete some paperwork for his forthcoming marriage, but he never came out of that building alive.

However, as diplomatic pressure grew tremendously on Riyadh to give an account on the mysterious fate of its national, in an unexpected statement last month, Saudi Attorney General Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb admitted that Khashoggi had been killed in a “premeditated” attack in the consulate.

A set of findings and evidence in Turkey’s own probe disprove some of the Saudi prosecutor’s claims over the killing.
