The Lead-Up to a New Saudi King

Lots of new headlines coming out of saudi today too, like an announcement that they signed an agreement with Japanese energy firms and carmaker Nissan to launch the first pilot project for electric vehicles, and another announcement on picking companies to build a nuclear power facility in the Kingdom. Definitely shaking things up.
