Wikipedia has stated that King Abdullah has recently died. It is on their site.
I don’t really consider Wikipedia an authority of last resort, but getting news out of Saudi Arabia can be difficult due the fear the royal family has about national stability.
Prince Salman is supposedly his heir, as Crown Prince. But there are questions about his health, including rumors that he has dementia.
So we could very well be looking at the Allegiance Council, a body that is composed of the sons and grandsons of Saudi Arabia’s founder, King Abdulaziz, to vote by a secret ballot to choose future kings and crown princes.
Wikipedia? Seriously? So, I went and looked anyway... absolutely nothing on the King’s wikipedia page regarding death.
You know what I find even more amazing??? This report and picture out of Saudi Arabia yesterday - May 27, 2013 - showing King Abdullah speaking to Prince Salman, and detailing how the King chaired a cabinet meeting all while “clinically dead” according to the Iranian government...
Next time I would seriously suggest waiting on word from a reputable source before taking anything you see in the Iranian Press as truth.
