Saudi Arabia mourned on Friday editor-in-chief of Al-Riyadh newspaper, Fahd Bin Rashid Al-Abdulkarim, who passed away after a long illness.


Acting Media Minister Majid al-Qasabi tweeted that Abdulkarim was among the pioneers of journalism in the Kingdom.


Abdulkarim was among Saudi Arabia’s most prominent journalists. He worked in the field during the Al-Yamamah magazine’s heyday in the 1990s. He then started working at al-Riyadh newspaper, serving as its editor-in-chief since July 2017.
