The funeral has taken place in Saudi Arabia of Prince Saud al-Faisal who was the world’s longest-serving foreign minister, holding the job for 40 years.

He died on Thursday, just two months after being replaced in the post – although the 75-year-old had retained an influential position in Saudi foreign policy circles.

He was replaced on April 29 by Adel al-Jubeir, the then-ambassador to Washington.
