Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz dies

Abdullah bin Abdulaziz was the fifth of his brothers to take the throne and became king in 2005, reports Caroline Hawley 

King Abdullah, who was said to be aged about 90, had been suffering from a lung infection. 

A statement early on Friday said his 79-year-old half brother, Salman, had become king.
