King Fahd of Saudi Arabia Reported Dead

Is King Fahd dead?

Reliable sources in the Saudi capital Riyadh said Friday King Fahd is dead, reports the Saudi Institute.

King Fahd of Saudi Arabia has been dead since late Wednesday, according to several well-placed sources in the capital Riyadh who spoke to the Saudi Institute, a pro-democracy think tank in Washington, on condition of anonymity.

The government also canceled all military leave, “a sure sign that something is happening,” said the Saudi Institute.

The Saudi government denies it and say that he’s in the hospital but in a stable condition and that tests are being run.

Anyway, I really doubt that.
When these kinds of news start breaking out, they seem to always turn out to be true.
It’s always just a case of the government trying to win some time to figure things out and stabilize things before officially announcing it.

We’ll wait and see…
