Riyadh, Asharq Al-Awsat- The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud will undergo a second back operation in New York City today, according to a statement from the Saudi press agency.

The statement said that the king will undergo a second back operation to stabilize a number of vertebrae in his spinal cord and complete the earlier surgery he underwent last week in accordance with the treatment plan recommended by the medical team.

The first surgery at the Presbyterian Hospital in New York extracted the clot and corrected the disc. Days later, Saudi officials said King Abdullah was walking again and that the operation had been successful.
