Saudi King Leaves Hospital One Week After Surgery

RIYADH—Saudi Arabia’s King Salman left a Riyadh hospital on Thursday after a 10-day stay that included an operation to remove his gallbladder, quieting speculation that his son Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman might soon accede to the throne.

The 84-year-old monarch walked out of King Faisal Specialist Hospital with the help of his usual cane but otherwise under his own power, a video published by state news agency SPA showed. Prince Mohammed, often referred to by his initials MBS, followed close behind, wearing a face mask.
