Sources in Riyadh disclosed that former Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal has passed away at the age of 75, Al-Alam News Network reports.

A source in the Saudi government, who asked to remain anonymous due to the sensitivity of his information, said the former Saudi foreign minister last night.

Officials in Riyadh first declined to comment on the revelation, but confirmed the report a few hours after it surfaced the media.

Faisal's death is markedly important as it comes after a hacking group known as the Yemen Cyber Army launched a successful cyberattack on Saudi Arabia's foreign ministry in May and released hundreds of thousands of top secret documents that disclosed the true identity of Riyadh's spies as well as the autocracy's darkest plots staged or underway in different world nation.
