Gülen said in a statement on Friday that he extends his condolences to Saudi Arabia’s “valuable” king and the “custodian of the Noble Sanctuaries” and wished patience for the new king, Salman.

A royal court statement said early on Friday that the king died at 1 a.m. on Friday. His successor was announced as 79-year-old half-brother, Prince Salman, according to the statement carried on the Saudi Press Agency. Salman was Abdullah’s crown prince and had recently taken on some of the ailing king’s responsibilities.
