King Hussein Has Abscess Drained

King Hussein is recuperating in a London hospital after surgery to remove an abscess, the monarch’s doctor said Saturday.

“The abscess was fully drained and His Majesty is recuperating in his hospital bed now,” Lt. Gen. Samir Farraj told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from London. He declined to elaborate.

The 60-year-old monarch underwent the surgery at the London Clinic on Friday night and will be discharged today, Farraj said.
