    Saudi Prince Alaweed bin Talal promised to award pilots with Bentleys for part in the Yemen bombing campaign which killed 943 and injured 3,487.

    Saudi billionaire Prince Alaweed bin Talal promised free Bentleys to fighter pilots who took part in the Yemen bombing campaign in a Tweet he later deleted.

    "To recognize the one hundred participating Saudi pilots I am pleased to present them with 100 Bentley cars," bin Talal said.

    Alaweed bin Talal is one of the richest people in the world and owns a $300 million stake in Twitter as well as stakes in Apple, and Time Warner.

    On March 26, upon a request from ousted Yemen President Hadi, Saudi Arabia and its allies launched a military operation codenamed Decisive Storm to force the Houthis to hand power back to the president.
