Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri has posted a selfie with Morocco's King Mohammed VI and Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Twitter, with all three beaming in the photo.

The image, reportedly taken in the King George V Hotel in Paris past midnight on Tuesday, was accompanied by a caption consisting of only two words: "No comment."
