DUBAI - Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz al-Saud died at dawn on Saturday abroad, the country's royal court said in a statement carried by state media.

Sultan, who was thought to be aged about 86, had been in the United States for medical treatment since June.

As well as heir to the throne of the world's top oil exporter, he had been defense minister and minister of aviation for about four decades.

"With deep sorrow and sadness the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz mourns the death of his brother and his Crown Prince Sultan... who died at dawn this morning Saturday outside the kingdom following an illness," said the statement carried on state news agency SPA and state television.
