Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud Died in Switzerland





Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Pangeran Nayef bin Abdulaziz al-Sauddied in Geneva, Saudi state television said on Saturday. Nayef has only been appointed a crown prince for a while, since the death of the crown prince Prince Sultan, who died in the United States.

Prince Nayef became a domestic minister since 1975, appointed as the heir to the throne, and will replace King Abdullah Abdullah, and was crowned crown prince in October, after his brother's death, prince's crown prince.

The funeral of the crown prince Prince Nayef bin Abdulaziz al-Saud will be held on Sunday, the evening before the sun is up, said a Saudi official. Al Arabiya television reports that Prince Nayef will be worshiped by the Grand Mosque, Mecca. Prince Najef died at the age of 78 years.


With the death of Prince Nayef, it means King Abdullah, who is 89 years old, must choose the heir only the second time in just nine months.

Defense Minister Prince Salman, 76, appears to have replaced Prince Nayef. Salman is deemed most appropriate to replace Nayef, because among the most senior crown prince is Prince Salman.
King Abdullah, Nayef, and Salman are among the 40 founding fathers of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Abdulaziz bin Saud. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was founded by Saud in 1935.

Salman was appointed as defense minister last November, after Prince Sultan died, and previously Salman served as governor of Riyadh for five decades.

Nayef, who was Saudi Arabia's interior minister and intelligence chief, played a major role in suppressing and suppressing what is called Saudi radicals and fundamentalists.

In fact, a figure of the Arabian al-Qaeda (AQAB), threatened to kill him, if he still continued the harsh actions against fundamentalist groups, and did not uphold God's law in Saudi Arabia.
