Dalai Lama taken to hospital in India

AKIPRESS.COM - The Dalai Lama has been admitted to hospital in the Indian capital, Delhi, with a chest infection, but is reported to be in a stable condition.

His private aide Tenzin Taklha said he was flown to Delhi from his hill town base after complaining of discomfort.

The 83-year-old Tibetan spiritual leader fled to India 60 years ago after a failed uprising against Chinese rule.

"Doctors have diagnosed him with a chest infection and he is being treated for that. His condition is stable now. He will be treated for two-three days here," Tenzin Taklha.
