In this Wednesday, May 2, 2012 photo, Prince Ahmed bin Abdul-Aziz arrives before the Interior ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council "GCC" meeting in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Prince Ahmed was promoted from deputy interior minister to take Nayef's place leading the ministry, which has played the front-line role in crackdowns on Islamic militants following the Sept. 11 attacks. The move appears to put Ahmed, believed to be in his early 70s, in a position to be in line for the throne. (AP Photo/Hassan Ammar)
