Sultan of Oman dies aged 79

Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, one of the Middle East’s longest serving rulers, died on Friday. Qaboos bin Said’s cousin Haitham bin Tariq al-Said was named as his successor. Qaboos bin Said was considered a trusted and seasoned leader who managed to balance ties between two neighbours locked in a regional struggle, Saudi Arabia to the west and Iran to the north.
