Nelson Mandela Hospitalized

It’s serious:

Former President Nelson Mandela has been admitted to hospital in South Africa with a lung infection.

A presidential spokesman said he is in a “serious but stable condition”, although he was able to breathe on his own – a “positive sign”.

Mr Mandela, 94, has been ill for some days but deteriorated overnight and was transferred to a hospital in Pretoria.
