RIYADH: The Saudi Royal Court has announced the death of Prince Mansour Bin Muqrin Al Saud, Deputy Governor of Asir Region. The funeral prayer will be performed at Imam Turki bin Abdullah Mosque in Riyadh, reported the Saudi Press Agency, SPA.

Earlier in the day the wreckage of a helicopter carrying the Deputy Governor of the Asir region of Saudi Arabia, Prince Mansour Bin Muqren bin Abdulaziz, has been found, the Kingdom’s Interior Ministry announced.

According to the ministry’s security spokesman, authorities were currently searching for survivors, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), is reporting.

Prince Mansour and a number of officials boarded the helicopter on Sunday to tour a number of coastal projects west of Abha city, as part of the governor’s periodic inspection tours. While returning that evening, contact with the helicopter was lost in the vicinity of the Reda Reserve, added SPA.
