Nelson Mandela back in hospital

 Nelson Mandela back in hospital

Former South African President Nelson Mandela was taken late Wednesday evening to a hospital due to a recurrence of a lung infection he suffered late last year, the South African government said in a statement Thursday morning.

“Doctors are attending to him, ensuring that he has the best possible expert medical treatment and comfort,” said the statement, which gave no details on Mandela’s condition. The former president and icon of the democratic movement which ended apartheid in South Africa is 94 years old.
Sources close to the family tell CBS News that Mandela had been put on oxygen for periods of time Wednesday, and his doctors called an ambulance to the home late in the evening after determining he was experiencing a recurrence of the trouble with his lungs.
