  • Salman bin Abdulaziz in Riyadh

Iraq's new Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi postponed a planned visit to Saudi Arabia on Monday following news of the king's condition, said Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan.

Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz has been admitted to hospital, suffering from inflammation of the gall bladder, according to state media.

The 84-year-old monarch was undergoing medical tests at King Faisal Specialist Hospital after being diagnosed with an inflamed gallbladder, state-run Saudi Press Agency reported, citing a statement from the royal court.

King Salman has been in power since January 2015.

He has presided over Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's rapid reform plan to transform the kingdom's economy and end its dependence on oil.

The 34-year-old prince, who is popular among many young Saudis, has won praise at home for easing social restrictions in the conservative Muslim kingdom, giving more rights to women and pledging to diversify the economy. The prince has also detained dozens of activists and critics, overseen the devastating Yemen war as defense minister and rounded up top members of the royal family in his quest for power. But in practice, it's the crown prince who has been the country's de facto ruler since 2017, when he pushed aside an older cousin in a seismic shift in the historic practice of sharing power between different branches of the family.

MBS faced global scrutiny over the 2018 killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside a Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

He also served as governor of the Riyadh region for more than 50 years.
