RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Saudi Arabia says Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal is recovering from abdominal surgery in the United States.

Prince Saud will spend several weeks “at his palace in Los Angeles” following surgery in a Saudi hospital, the ministry said in a statement Monday.

The Royal Court said Thursday that the 72-year-old prince left a hospital in the oil-rich kingdom. He was operated upon to remove a “simple” blockage in the intestines due to adhesions resulting from previous surgery.

Prince Saud is a nephew to King Abdullah. He has been foreign minister since 1975.
