Saudi Arabi King Abdullah Is In Good Health, Repeats Crown Prince
By Arab News
Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Salman said that Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah was “well and in good health” after the king underwent a back surgery at King Abdul Aziz Medical City about 10 days ago.
“Brothers, I convey to you greetings of King Abdullah and I convey to you good news that he is well and in good health,” Prince Salman, who is also the defense minister, told counterparts from the six-member Gulf Cooperation Council at a meeting in Riyadh.
Prince Salman and other senior princes yesterday visited the hospital to get reassured about the king’s health.
King Abdullah underwent a similar operation in October last year and had back surgery twice in the United States in 2010 for a herniated disc, after which he spent three months outside Saudi Arabia recuperating.
