    Saudi Arabia's crown prince Nayef dies

    Saudi Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz, seen here in 2010, a half brother of King Abdullah and the long-serving interior minister of the kingdom, has died June 16, 2012.

    Saudi Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz, a half brother of King Abdullah, died on Saturday, the royal court said, leaving the oil powerhouse with no apparent successor to the throne.

    A long-serving interior minister, Prince Nayef "died outside" Saudi Arabia having recently left the Gulf state for medical treatment, said a statement carried by state media, including Al-Ekhbariyah Television and SPA news agency.

    His funeral would be held on Sunday after sunset prayers in the Muslim holy city of Mecca, after his body is repatriated, it added.

    The 79-year-old's death, only eight months after he replaced his late brother crown prince Sultan, raises the issue of succession due to the advanced age of the first line of apparent heirs, as turmoil rocks the Arab world.

    King Abdullah is 88 and ailing, and nobody is officially in line to replace Nayef.

    However, his brother Prince Salman, 76, who took over the portfolio of defence minister after Sultan's death, appears to be a strong candidate.

    Nayef, spearheaded Saudi Arabia's clampdown on Al-Qaeda following a wave of attacks in Saudi Arabia between 2003 and 2006, became heir to the throne in October last year.

    He was the middle prince of the Sudairi Seven, the formidable bloc of sons of King Abdul Aziz by a favorite wife, Princess Hassa al-Sudairi.

    Prince Nayef had been abroad on several occasions this year for medical reasons, including to Algeria, the United States, and Switzerland, where he was shown on television in Geneva three days ago greeting supporters.

    The nature of his illness has not been made public.

    Less than two weeks ago, his brother Prince Ahmed bin Abdul Aziz was quoted as saying in a Saudi daily that the crown prince was in "good health" and that he would "soon" return to the kingdom.

    On May 26, SPA news agency said Prince Nayef had left the country for medical tests abroad for the second time in less than three months, without naming the destination.

    In March, the royal palace said he went to Algeria on holiday after the results of medical tests he underwent in the US city of Cleveland were reported as "reassuring."

    He returned to Saudi Arabia from Algeria on April 10.

    Seen as more conservative than King Abdullah, Prince Nayef was a staunch defender of the Saudi dynasty who resisted any form of opposition.

    He ordered and oversaw a fierce crackdown on Al-Qaeda between 2003 and 2006, forcing the jihadist group's leaders and militants to flee to Yemen, from where they continue to threaten Saudi interests.

    As interior minister, Prince Nayef also dismantled charitable organisations that collected donations for the terror network.

    He was known to be close to the religious establishment, and has opposed introducing elections to vote in members of the all-appointed consultative council, and he opposed allowing women to vote in municipal elections.

    The Boss,

    Replacement keshapatikana....


    Saudi Arabia names Prince Salman as heir apparent



    [​IMG]

    Prince Salman is thought to be more liberal-minded than his late brother

    Prince Salman has been appointed the new crown prince of Saudi Arabia, becoming the next-in-line to 88-year-old King Abdullah's throne.

    The appointment, by royal decree quoted on state television, comes after Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud died in Geneva on Saturday.

    Prince Salman, 76, is the current defence minister and has been governor of the capital Riyadh for many decades.
    Prince Nayef, who was 78, died during medical treatment.

    Prince Salman bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud is thought to be pragmatic and more liberal-minded than his late brother, who was seen as more conservative than King Abdullah and personally committed to maintaining strict religious traditions.

    However, the move had been widely expected and is unlikely to bring any substantial change, BBC Arab affairs analyst Sebastian Usher reports.

    But the announcement has again postponed the potentially difficult but inevitable transition to a younger generation, our analyst says.

    Prince Salman will stay on as defence minister and also becomes deputy prime minister.

    He is part of the same influential Sudairi faction as his late brother and the late King Fahd.

    The group is formed of the sons of the late King Abdul Aziz by a favourite wife, Princess Hassa al-Sudairi.

    Prince Salman's younger brother Prince Ahmed becomes interior minister, state television said, while King Abdullah remains prime minister.

    Prince Ahmed had served as deputy to Prince Nayef at the interior ministry for many years.

    Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz has been admitted to an intensive care unit in a hospital.


    On Saturday, Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz, the half brother of Saudi King Abdullah was announced dead.

    The 79-year-old Nayef, who was also the long-serving interior minister of Saudi Arabia, recently left the kingdom for medical treatment and was seen in Switzerland a few days ago.

    Next in line for the position of crown prince is expected to be Nayef’s younger brother, Prince Salman, who is the minister of defense. However, no one has officially been announced to replace the dead crown prince.
