Saudi Arabia's King Salman held his first-ever Cabinet meeting in NEOM, a planned $500 billion futuristic city that will host more robots than people in a desolate peninsula in the kingdom's northwest. The sci-fi city on the Red Sea coast is designed to represent Saudi Arabia's efforts to transform itself away from oil.
