Saudi Arabia finally steps up for Haiti

From the Arab News:
Saudi Arabia will donate $50 million in aid to earthquake-devastated Haiti. “On instructions from Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah, the Kingdom will donate $50 million to assist the Haitian people,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Osama Nugali said Monday.
Since the quake hit, the oil-rich nation had been strongly criticized for not donating anything.
