An image grab taken from Saudi state TV on January 23, 2015 shows Saudi Arabia’s new King Salman in his first public address, in the Saudi capital Riyadh. King Salman asked God to support him in his “great responsibility” but pledged no change in the kingdom’s direction. At the same time, he named his son as defence minister and appointed Mohammed bin Nayef as the kingdom’s second crown prince.
