Prince Sultan Returning to KSA Friday after a Year Abroad

Crown Prince Sultan of Saudi Arabia, who has spent most of the past year either in his palace in Agadir, Morocco or in US hospitals, will return to the Kingdom on Friday, according to Gulf News.

On several occasions over the past month plus, his son, Prince Khalid bin Sultan, the Deputy Defense Minister for Military Affairs, has said that his father (who is Minister of Defense and Aviation as well as next in line for the throne) would return "within the next few weeks," but this is the first specific date.
