Published: Updated:

The father of an injured Saudi national said the king of Saudi Arabia had followed up on his daughter’s case, she was among those wounded during the Boston’s bomb blasts on Monday.

In a phone interview with Al Arabiya on Wednesday, Khalid al-Ajaji, the father of Noora, a dentistry exchange student in Boston, said his daughter is in the process of recovery, is set to be released soon, and has been well looked-after.

“The care was excellent; the Saudi King himself called the Saudi ambassador to follow up with Noora’s situation. The cultural attaché, Mohammed al-Issa, also followed up on Noora’s situation. Prince Miteb, chief of National Guard, also made sure that Noora was doing fine.”

Following the twin blasts, it was reported that two Saudi nationals were injured in Boston but neither was accused of involvement in the attack.

However, the Saudi Embassy said that one was initially put under armed guard at a hospital.

Two bombs exploded in the crowded streets near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing at least three people and injuring more than 140.

The incident raised alarms that terrorists might have struck again in the United States.
