    ABU DHABI (Reuters) - The president of OPEC member the United Arab Emirates, Shiekh Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahayan, has died, state television says.

    "The royal court announces to Arab and Islamic countries and the rest of the world the death of the leader of the nation Sheikh Zayed ... on Tuesday evening," said an announcement read out on Abu Dhabi television.

    Under the UAE constitution, Vice-President and Prime Minister Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid al-Maktoum, ruler of Dubai, will act as president until the federal council which groups rulers of the seven emirates meets within 30 days to elect a new president.

    Sad news, just heard from my Uncle (he called us, lives in Abu Dhabi).

    Jeff Loomis: He's so good, he doesn't need to be dead to have a tribute.
