NNA – Oman’s Sultan Qaboos returned home on Monday after eight months of medical treatment in Germany, state television reported.
Qaboos, in his mid-70s, has ruled the Arabian peninsula state since 1970, but his prolonged stay in Germany had led to growing concern about his health. Oman’s royal court gave no details of his illness during his absence. State television showed him walking unaided from an aircraft. —Reuters
