Saudi Arabia's Sheikh Suleiman Al Rajhi, one of the world's richest men, can now also lay claim to be one of the most generous.

The businessman has announced he is donating away much of his $6 billion fortune to charity.

It is not known whether the Skeikh had always planned to give away his fortune but the recent regional events may have played a role in his decision.
