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.
