Who is Oman’s new Sultan?

Haitham bin Tariq Al Said has been sworn in as Oman’s new Sultan, after nearly 50 years under Sultan Qaboos’ rule.

Who is the new leader?

CORRECTION: At 00:03, it says "after nearly half a decade under Sultan Qaboos’ rule". This is incorrect. Sultan Qaboos ruled Oman for nearly half a century not half a decade.
