    0

    BANGKOK: Thailand’s revered but aging King Bhumibol Adulyadej on Sunday left a Bangkok hospital where he has been recuperating since October for his coastal palace, as hundreds of well-wishers cheered him on his journey. The 87-year-old king, the world’s longest-serving monarch, is treated as a near-deity by many Thais and his health is a subject of public concern in the politically turbulent country. The convoy carrying Bhumibol left Siriraj Hospital for his home in the southern town of Hua Hin shortly after 2 pm, with Queen Sirikit, 82, and their daughter Princess Sirindhorn, 60, traveling behind the monarch, all three in separate vehicles.
