The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia is in stable condition, three Saudi sources said, after the 84-year-old monarch was admitted to hospital in Riyadh on Monday with what state media said was inflammation of the gall bladder.
Three well-connnected Saudi sources who declined to be identified, two of whom were speaking late on Monday and one on Tuesday, told Reuters the king was "fine".
An official in the region, who requested anonymity, said he spoke to one of King Salman's sons on Monday who seemed "calm" and that there was no sense of panic about the monarch's health.
King Salman received phone calls from the leaders of Kuwait, Bahrain and Jordan on Monday, state media reported.
