Nelson Mandela Still in Hospital

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Former South African President Nelson Mandela remained in serious but stable condition during his fourth day in the hospital Tuesday for a recurring lung infection, while school children sang outside the 94-year-old icon's home in hopes the former president would recover.

A government statement said President Jacob Zuma was briefed by Mandela's doctors late Monday and is satisfied they are doing all they can to improve his health. The statement gave no additional details as to how Mandela is fairing other than to describe his condition as serious but stable.
