Ailing Talabani to be treated in Germany

20 December, 2012

BAGHDAD: Iraq's ailing President Jalal Talabani will be flown to Germany for specialist treatment after a reported stroke, his office said on Wednesday.

Talabani was hospitalised late on Monday after what state television reported was a stroke, but doctors said on Wednesday that his condition was improving.

Barzan Sheikh Othman, the top media official in Talabani's office, said teams of doctors from Iraq, Germany and Britain decided that the president should be transferred to Germany for further treatment.

"The president's condition is improving, and he will be transferred to a hospital in Germany tomorrow," said Najm al-Din Karim, one of Talabani's doctors.
