Former US secretary of state Henry Kissinger was discharged from hospital in the South Korean capital Seoul on Sunday after being treated for a minor stomach problem, officials said.Not the most exciting piece of news, but it's news. He should count his blessings that this didn't occur during the early days of the H1N1 scare. (His original hospitalization was mentioned here.)
Kissinger, 86, was admitted to Severance Hospital on Saturday after complaining of stomach pain, according to the hospital and the US embassy.
"Mr. Kissinger has just been released from hospital, healthy," a hospital spokesman told AFP on Sunday.
"I understand he had a minor stomach ache."
The former top US diplomat had been in Seoul since Wednesday to address a security forum. He also met President Lee Myung-Bak on Friday.
