News breaks of a changing of the guard in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi State TV announces that King Salman appointed his nephew as the new heir apparent, Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, sidelining his younger half brother as crown prince.

He also appointed his son, Prince Mohammed bin Salman, as deputy crown prince.

The king also replaced veteran foreign minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, with the kingdom’s Washington ambassador Adel al-Jubeir taking the top diplomat post in his place.

The changes signal a major shift at the top of the ruling Al Saud family — moving away from those chosen by the late King Abdullah, and towards those close to the new monarch King Salman.
