Why do I not see this on Google news when I search 'prince bandar' ? Google does show Middle East news lamenting his death but does not give a cause,no mention of London airport and no real obituary.I don't see and NY Times or any other mainstream news source even mentioning it.Strange.
Even you source as a new item is not from a paper in the UK.
Are there any London papers that have covered the suicide or whatever ?
If I do a 'regular'google search rather that using its mainsteam news site that has been taken over by established newspapers in recent times to drown out bloggers,the suicide is mentioned but not any mainstream news comes up as having covered the story.Why ?!
Actually I never resolved in my mind what happened re Prince Bandar's first supposed violent death in Saidi Arabia in 2012 which I remember aangirfan and other sources such as voltaire also reported.
In fact I don't remember any public appearance by him since he was reported to have died in bomb blast in Saudi Arabia in 2012,do you ? OK,I must retract not having heard anything about him in mainstream media since alleged Syrian bombing in Saudi Arabia in 2012.Below is 2012 death by bombing rumor apparently debunked by 'insiders' and then a 2017 article where he appears to be stirring up a war against Iran and then we have him being arrested and tortured in Saudi Arabia for arms sales involving the British military industrial complex and then the same article saying however he wasn't arrested at all but living happily in Jeddah.Go figure because I certainly can't.

Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the former Saudi ambassador to the US, pictured here in 2007, is among those arrested (AFP)
One of the most famous is Prince Bandar bin Sultan, a former Saudi ambassador to Washington and confidant of former US president George W Bush.
Saudi authorities said that one of the corruption cases they are looking at is the al-Yamamah arms deal, in which Bandar was involved. But Bandar himself is not under arrest and living in Jeddah, a source told MEE.
Bandar bought a hamlet in Oxfordshire, in a picturesque area of central England, and a 2,000-acre sporting estate with part of the proceeds from kickbacks he received in the al-Yamamah arms deal, which netted British manufacturer BAE £43bn ($56.5bn) in contracts for fighter aircraft.
As much as $30m (£15m) is alleged to have been paid into Bandar’s dollar account at Riggs Bank in Washington and the affair led to corruption probes in the US and UK, although the case was dropped in the UK in 2006 after an intervention by then-prime minister Tony Blair.
Interesting Saudi Prince Salman was in London at about time Prince Bandar dies or is suicided or whatever.
