A picture has been shared multiple times on Facebook alongside a claim that it shows the Saudi king and priests from the Vatican inaugurating a Catholic church in Saudi Arabia. The claim is false: the picture has circulated in reports about a United Arab Emirates (UAE) minister and Vatican envoys attending the opening ceremony of the second Catholic church in Abu Dhabi in 2015.
