Saudi King, Crown Prince receive family of deceased Major General Abdulaziz al-Faghm
Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and his Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman on Monday received the family of General Abdulaziz al-Faghm, the king's bodyguard who was shot and killed during a dispute over the weekend.

King Salman offered his condolences to the family, hailing Faghm’s loyalty and dedication during his years of service to the Kingdom.

Faghm previously served as the bodyguard to King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz.

After his passing, he came to serve King Salman.

His shock death over the weekend sparked an outpouring of sympathy in Saudi Arabia.

His father had also served as King Abdullah’s bodyguard. He worked for him for three decades before he was succeeded by Faghm, who continued his father's legacy in serving kings.
