King Salman of Saudi Arabia has announced a major cabinet reshuffle, a week after he acceded to the throne.
The chief of intelligence and the head of the national security council have both been replaced.
Other top officials, including the ministers of defence, oil, and foreign affairs, have kept their jobs.
The governor of Mecca and the governor of the capital Riyadh were replaced as were several senior religious officials.
King Salman - who was a half-brother of the late King Abdullah - also gave a bonus of two months' salary to all Saudi state employees and military personnel. Pensioners and students received similar bonuses.
The changes were announced in 30 royal decrees.
"Dear people: You deserve more and whatever I do will not be able to give you what you deserve," the king said later on his Twitter account.
He asked citizens to "not forget me in your prayers".
The Saudi Press Agency said King Salman had relieved intelligence chief Prince Khalid bin Bandar bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud of his post.
