Mandela discharged

Former South African president Nelson Mandela has been discharged from hospital after routine tests and is well, the government said on Sunday (March 10). The 94-year-old anti-apartheid leader was admitted to hospital on Saturday (March 9) for a scheduled medical check-up. He spent nearly three weeks in hospital in December with a lung infection and after surgery to remove gallstones. It was his longest stay in hospital since his release from prison in 1990 after serving 27 years for conspiring to overthrow the government under the apartheid regime. Since his release from that stay in hospital on Dec. 26, he had been receiving treatment at his Johannesburg home.
