Saudi prince found dead in desert
Riyadh, July 30
Saudi Prince Fahd bin Turki bin Saud al Kabir has been found dead in his
country's searing desert, the official SPA news agency said early on
Tuesday, adding that the prince apparently died of thirst.
The report said the 25-year-old prince had been travelling in Rimah
province, south of the town of al Ammaniya.
It gave no further details.
Prince Fahd was the third member of the extensive Saudi royal family to
die in a week.
Prince Sultan bin Faisal bin Turki al-Saud, 41, died in a road accident on
July 23 as he was driving from the coastal resort of Jeddah to the capital
Riyadh for the funeral of his cousin Prince Ahmed bin Salman bin Abdul
Aziz, 43, who had died the day before of a heart attack.
