(FILES) – A handout file picture released by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) on March 26, 2015 shows Saudi Defence Minister Mohammed bin Salman (L) and Second Crown Prince and Interior Minister Mohammed bin Nayef (R) arriving for a meeting with Saudi air forces officers to discuss plans and developments of the military operations against Yemen. Saudi Arabia’s King Salman on April 29, 2015 named his powerful interior minister, Prince Mohammed bin Nayef (R), as heir in a major shakeup that also saw King Salman’s son, Prince Mohammed bin Salman (L), who is in his early 30s, be named deputy crown prince. Prince Salman retains his position of defence minister, in which he has recently played a key role in a Saudi-led coalition conducting air strikes on Yemeni rebels.
