Manama: The Saudi Royal Court on Monday announced the death of Prince Bader Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud.

“The funeral prayers will be held on Tuesday at the Imam Turki Mosque in Riyadh,” the court said in a brief announcement carried by the Saudi Press Agency.

The prince, 81, is the 20th son of King Abdul Aziz Al Saud, the founder of the Saudi kingdom and its first ruler.

He served as minister of communication in 1961 and as deputy commander of the National Guard from 1968 until he asked to be relieved in November, 2010.

He was also known for his active role as the head of the supreme committee for the national heritage and culture festival and in the equestrian club.
