King Fahd, Saudi Arabia's ruler for more than 20 years, has died and his brother, Crown Prince Abdullah, has been announced the country's new monarch.

King Faud died early Monday at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital in the Saudi capital of Riyadh. Saudi TV said the king was 84 years of age.

An official cause of death was not given. The country's information minister, Iyad bin Amin Madani, said on Saudi TV that King Faud had "died after suffering an illness."

"With all sorrow and sadness, the royal court in the name of his highness Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz and all members of the family announces the death of the custodian of the two holy mosques, King Fahd bin Abdul Aziz,'' according to a statement read out by Madani.
