Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah has traveled to Morocco after spending two months in the United States where he had back surgery.

Saudi state media reports say King Abdullah arrived in Casablanca, Saturday, where he will undergo more rehabilitation. The reports did not specify when King Abdullah would return home.

The Saudi king is in his mid-80's. In November, he underwent surgery in New York for a herniated disc complicated by a blood clot. He had a second procedure in New York in December.

King Abdullah's relative, Crown Prince Sultan, has been governing the kingdom in his absence.

Some information for this report was provided by AP, AFP and Reuters.
