Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz died yesterday and was replaced by Crown Prince Salman.

The late monarch's half brother Moqren was named crown prince, according to the statement.

King Abdullah, believed to be around 90 years old, was hospitalised in December suffering from pneumonia and had been breathing with the aid of a tube.

Abdullah's half-brother Salman, was named crown prince in June 2012 following the death of Prince Nayef bin.

Salman had been representing the king at most recent public events because of the monarch's poor health.
