Dalai Lama, 83, taken to hospital in India

The Dalai Lama has been admitted to hospital in the Indian capital, Delhi, with a chest infection, but is reported to be in a stable condition. His private aide Tenzin Taklha said he was flown to Delhi from his hill town base after complaining of discomfort. The 83-year-old Tibetan spiritual leader fled to India 60 years ago after a failed uprising against Chinese rule. The Nobel peace laureate is a hugely popular speaker but has cut down his global engagements in recent years. China took control of Tibet in 1950 and sees the Dalai Lama as a dangerous separatist. Who will succeed the Dalai Lama when he dies remains both unclear and contentious. China says its leaders have the right to choose a successor.
