Former Saudi FM Prince Saud al-Faisal dies


Saudi Arabia’s former foreign minister Prince Saud Al Faisal died on Thursday at the age of 75, two months after he was replaced following 40 years in the job, his nephew said.

Prince Saud, who was appointed in 1975, was the world’s longest serving foreign minister when he was replaced on April 29 by Adel al-Jubeir, the then ambassador to Washington.
