• Imprisoned Peru ex-president Fujimori taken to hospital


    LIMA: Former Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori, serving a 25-year prison term for corruption and crimes against humanity, was transferred to a hospital Friday after experiencing high blood pressure and pain in his tongue. The 77-year-old has been in and out of the hospital in recent months for a series of health problems. He has previously had gastric problems, cataract surgery and five operations for a cancerous growth on his tongue. The hospitalization came 12 days after his daughter Keiko narrowly lost Peru’s presidential election to center-right candidate Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.
