Saudi Prince Mishaal, brother of King Salman, has died Wednesday at the age of 93, the state-owned Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported. 

On Thursday, “funeral prayers on his soul to be performed at the holy grand mosque in Makkah after Isha (evening) prayers,” SPA reported the Royal Court as saying in a statement.
Prince Mishaal was the chairman of the 28-member body, known as the Allegiance Council. The Allegiance Council was formed in 2006 by King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz and tasked to formalize the succession process.

Saudis on Twitter unleashed a hashtag in Arabic to give their condolences over the death of the prince.
