PARIS, July 27 : Demonstrators - including nude swimmers - were yesterday protesting against the billionaire Saudi Royal family annexing a public beach on the French Riviera.
More than 100,000 people have signed a petition against King Salman and his entourage having the beautiful stretch of Mediterranean coast to himself during his summer holidays.
The petition insists the public beach in Vallauris should be "available for the benefit of all". The Saudi monarch arrived in the French Riviera on Saturday. His plane landed at Nice airport and he was driven away to his villa in a 10-vehicle motorcade, the local prefecture said.
King Salman and his 1,000-strong entourage are on a three-week holiday, with the king staying at the family's seafront home in Vallauris. The king's inner circle is staying at the villa - between Antibes and Marseille - while about 700 others will stay at hotels in Cannes.
Michel Chevillon, president of an association of Cannes' hotel managers, said the visit was "clearly good news" for hotels and the local economy.    ?THE SCOTSMAN
