(Bloomberg) -- U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will cut short his Middle East tour and return home early due to a death in the family, two people familiar with the matter said.

The people, who spoke on condition of anonymity as the information was not public, said Pompeo would proceed from Saudi Arabia, where he is meeting Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, to Oman but would cancel the Kuwait leg of the visit.

U.S. and Kuwaiti officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
