Saudis' Leader Is Dead, Ending 23-Year Reign

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Aug. 1 - King Fahd bin Abdel Aziz al-Saud, Saudi Arabia's long-ailing monarch who oversaw one of the country's greatest periods of growth while underwriting the spread of fiercely conservative Islam abroad, died Monday morning in the Saudi capital, ending a 23-year reign.

Better I post late than never, I suppose. Let us pray for his soul, and also for that of Saudi Arabia, that it may be healed.
