Relief as Carter diagnosed with stomach upset

Ex-US President Jimmy Carter was taken to hospital today after suffering a stomach upset on a flight in the United States.

The 85-year-old was resting comfortably at the MetroHealth Hospital, in Cleveland, said the Carter Centre.

Jackie Mayo, a spokeswoman at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, said he was a passenger on a Delta flight to Cleveland and became ill. He was taken off a plane by rescue crews.

The website for Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Cleveland said Carter was scheduled to appear today to sign and talk about his new book, White House Diary.

The centre said he was expected to resume his book tour this week.
