Saudi king's son Mohammed bin Salman is new crown prince

Saudi Arabia’s king deposed the sitting crown prince, on Wednesday, and replaced him with Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, the deputy crown prince, according to state media, BBC reported.

Mohammed bin Salman, who is the son of King Salman, will now be the first in line to the throne.

The 31-year-old has been appointed deputy prime minister and will continue in his role as defense minister, according to a royal decree cited by state media.

King Salman, 81, acceded to the throne in January 2015 after the death of his half-brother Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz.

He announced his first major cabinet reshuffle a few months later, appointing Prince Mohammed bin Nayef as crown prince and Prince Mohammed bin Salman as deputy crown prince.
