Saudi Arabia King Said To Be In Good Health

Saudi Arabia King Dies Of Heart Attack After Heated Argument With Obama

Saudi Arabia’s 86-year-old King Abdullah has been having health problems for a while, but it wasn’t until after talking to President Obama that they finally caught up with him.

Abdullah and Obama were having a heated argument about the situation in Egypt yesterday, and when they hung up the phone, Abdullah reportedly suffered a sudden heart attack.

Doctors tried to rescue him, but reports surfaced that the King had passed away.

Thankfully, Abdullah is doing well.

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal said in a statement today:

“He’s in excellent health, he’s undergoing therapy. The doctors are suggesting a certain amount of therapy and he’s doing twice as much as they tell him. …he is his usual self, assured of what he can do and ready and looking forward to going back to work and going back home.”

A senior embassy official from the Saudi embassy in Morocco added, “I can assure that the health of King Abdullah is excellent and gives no cause for any concern.”
