Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah has returned home after three months of treatment abroad for a back ailment.

The 86-year-old king arrived in the capital Riyadh on Wednesday and was treated by a red carpet reception, state-run al-Akhbariya television news network reported. 

The Saudi king headed to the United States to undergo medical treatment on a herniated disc in his back in November. Abdullah first underwent a successful operation on November 24. He had a follow-up back surgery on December 3 to stabilize several vertebrae in his spinal column. 

He left the New York Presbyterian Hospital / Weill Cornell Medical Center in good health on the night of Dec 21, 2010 to spend a period of convalescence and complete his physiotherapy at his residence in New York. 

King Abdullah arrived in Casablanca in Morocco on January 22 from New York to complete physical therapy and recovery. source
