Pro-government Saudi twitter account posts 9/11-inspired threat to Canada

The tweet has been removed and apologies made concerning this threatening message, depicting a Canadian airliner aimed at the CN Tower in Toronto, a response to Canadian criticism of Saudi Arabia's spectacularly grim human rights record.

A Saudi Arabian organization is apologizing after posting an image on Twitter appearing to show an Air Canada plane heading toward the CN Tower in a way that is reminiscent of the 9/11 attacks in the U.S. ... The Infographic KSA account is verified by Twitter and has over 350,000 followers, with another 88,000 on Instagram. It has a history of posting messages that are supportive of the Saudi government.

What could be more emblematic of the spendthrift incompetence of the new Saudi Arabian regime than threatening to crash a jetliner into a radio mast?
