Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, hospitalized earlier this week, is in stable condition after overcoming a lung infection, the royal court said in a statement on Friday.

“After the necessary medical tests by the medical team, it became apparent that there was a lung infection that required the insertion of a tube to aid with breathing on a temporary basis this evening,” according to a statement from the royal court carried on the Saudi Press Agency.

“Thanks be to God, that step was crowned with stability and success,” the statement added.
