The statement from King Abdullah says the prince died Saturday and will be buried Sunday after prayers in Mecca, but it gave no more details.

Nayef was the hard-line interior minister who spearheaded Saudi Arabia’s fierce crackdown crushing al-Qaida’s branch in the country and then rose to become next in line to the throne.
