Mystery surrounds death of another Saudi Prince Abdul Aziz
According to the Arabic AlIthad News, the Saudi Royal Court has released a statement saying that the Saudi royal family mourned the death of the prince Aziz who died at 44 without mentioning a reason for the death.
Prince Aziz was the youngest son of King Fahd and was reportedly arrested on Sunday amid an anti-corruption purge.
The news of the arrest and a subsequent gunfight came from various sources and earlier reports suggested that Abdul Aziz was hospitalised. The al-Masdar news network first reported the news of his death but later removed it.
The rumours of his death began doing the rounds after few verified accounts including the one of former FBI special agent Ali H. Soufan broke the news.
Abdul Aziz is confirmed dead. He was 44 years old. Earlier, Mansour son of the former crown prince Muqrin was also declared dead. https://t.co/IsUyU896o4— Ali H. Soufan (@Ali_H_Soufan) November 5, 2017
Moreover, a report on TheDuran website however did not mention a gunfight but only said 'died during an attempted arrest'.
Although the websites quoted the Royal decree, even then any official word confirming the demise of Prince Aziz is still awaited.
The death came a day after Prince Mansour Bin Muqrin died in a helicopter crash near the border of Yemen on Sunday afternoon.
