Saudi King Abdullah leaves NY hospital
Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah has left a New York hospital and is now recuperating at his home in the city, Press TV reported.
The 86-year-old king left the New York Presbyterian Hospital / Weill Cornell Medical Center in good health on Tuesday night to spend a period of convalescence and complete his physiotherapy at his residence in New York, the state-run Saudi Press Agency reported on Wednesday.
Saudi officials have already acknowledged that the elderly king might not return to his country for months.
The Saudi king headed to the United States to undergo medical treatment on a herniated disc in his back in November. Abdullah first underwent a successful operation on November 24. He had a follow-up back surgery on December 3 to stabilize several vertebrae in his spinal column.
