Millions of Saudis, GCC nationals, Arabs and many around the world are remembering the life and legacy of the King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz who passed away early Friday.
In local press and on social media, the late monarch is being hailed as a “king of hearts;” remembered for his “statesmanship, just governance and leadership, with a down to earth, direct, compassionate and kindhearted character,” according to several online posts.
King Salman bin Abdulaziz was announced the seventh king of Saudi Arabia, and Prince Muqrin bin Abdulaziz his crown prince, and Prince Mohammad bin Nayef, the deputy crown prince. King Salman tweeted from his official Twitter account his pledge to the Saudi people: “I ask Allah to make me succeed in serving our dear people and in achieving their wishes, and that He keeps our country and nation safe and stable, and He protect it from all mischief and harm.”
Heads of state from around the world sent their condolences and many are on their way to Saudi Arabia to attend the funeral.
