Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world’s longest reigning monarch, has received treatment for a chest infection, the palace said in a statement on Monday. The 87-year-old monarch has been in Bangkok’s Siriraj hospital for more than three months and has also received treatment for water on the brain since being admitted for a check-up in May. Bhumibol’s health is closely watched in Thailand, where he is widely revered and seen by many as a moral arbiter and symbol of continuity in a country that has experienced much upheaval during his 69-year reign.–Reuters
