Oman Culture Minister Takes Oath as New Monarch


Haitham bin Tariq Al Said, Oman’s Minister of Heritage and Culture, has succeeded Qaboos bin Said al-Said as the country’s monarch, the government confirmed.

Omani Sultan Qaboos bin Said al-Said passed away on Friday, leaving no apparent heir as the monarch had no children and never appointed a successor.

Omani newspaper Al-Watan reported that the official, who is Qaboos’ cousin, had taken the oath to become the country’s Sultan.
