Prince Saud to leave hospital soon: royal court
JEDDAH: Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal
is still recovering in hospital from an operation earlier this month but will be discharged within a few days, the royal court said late Friday.
| Who's pretty old but not as old as the King, who is positively old...|
"The respirator used after the fully successful surgery was removed Friday morning," the court said in a statement carried by the official SPA news agency. "His highness will leave hospital within the coming few days."
The royal court announced on August 11 that the 72-year-old prince had undergone surgery to remove an obstruction in his intestines.
Prince Saud is one of the world's longest-serving foreign ministers, having been appointed to the post in 1975.
|Bowel obstruction, eh? Yup, those are nasty and sometimes fatal in the elderly.|
|Going for the Andrei Gromyko longevity award...|
| What ever happened to their mutual brother, Prince Bandar bin Sultan? Is he dead or alive or something we should worry might be contagious?|
