Former South African President Nelson Mandel was released from a hospital where he has been treated for recurring lung infection since June 8.
His condition remains critical, but doctors feel he can still receive intensive care at home, the government said.
“Madiba’s condition remains critical and is at times unstable,” says a release by the South African government, referring to the 95-year-old by his clan name.
“His home has been reconfigured to allow him to receive intensive care there,” the release explains.
The government denied reports Saturday that Mandela had already been released. [Copyright 2013 NPR]
