There have been wild rumors for some time now speculating on what has happened to Saudi Prince and former Ambassador to America for 2 decades Bandar bin Sultan. Some of the more inventive stories suggested that he was in jail in Saudi for plotting a coup. However, more mundanely, Le Figaro’s Middle East blog reports that he has been in hospital in France and is now recuperating in Morocco: like father like son, you could say.

Depending on which rumour you choose to believe, he has been suffering from spinal problems, depression or colon cancer.
