Saudi Investment Conference Website Defaced by Gov't Critics

A high-profile Saudi investment conference that was due to begin this week experienced another setback after its website appeared to be defaced by hackers critical of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The home page for the conference — which markets itself as “Davos in the Desert” — was overtaken and replaced with a message calling for Saudi officials to be held “responsible for its barbaric and inhuman action, such as killing its own citizen Jamal khashoggi and thousands of innocent people in Yemen.”
