August 11, 2012

Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister, Prince Saud Al-Faisal, underwent a successful “minor” surgery, the Royal Court said in a statement posted on the website of the Saudi Press Agency today.

“Al-Faisal suffered a minor blockage in the intestines because of adhesions due to a previous surgery,” the Court said. He underwent surgery to break the adhesions and he is in a “stable condition,” it said.
