New York (CNN) — The heir to the Saudi throne, Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, died in a New York hospital early Saturday, officials said, raising succession questions in the key oil-producing country at a time of regional turmoil. Sultan, the half-brother of King Abdullah, was thought to be in his 80s. He had been ill for some time — various reports indicated that he was battling cancer — and was receiving treatment in New York. Saudi television broke into normal programming early Saturday to announce the death. It broadcast Quranic verses and footage of pilgrims in the holy city of Mecca. Sultan’s body will be flown back to Saudi Arabia and a burial is scheduled for Tuesday.
