Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal released - family sources

DUBAI, Jan 27 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabian billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has been released from detention, family sources said on Saturday, more than two months after he was taken into custody.

One family source said he has arrived home.

His release came hours after he told Reuters in an exclusive interview at the opulent Ritz-Carlton hotel in Riyadh that he expected to be cleared of any wrongdoing and be released from custody within days. (Writing by Sami Aboudi)
