Philippines' Imelda Marcos taken to hospital

December 10, 2000
Web posted at: 6:52 PM HKT (1052 GMT)

MANILA, Philippines (Reuters) -- Former Philippines first lady Imelda Marcos was taken to a Manila hospital on Sunday for treatment of an unspecified ailment, aides said.

They gave no indication what was wrong with the 71-year-old widow of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos but said her condition was not life threatening.

"No, definitely not," one of the aides told Reuters when asked if her life was in any danger.

"She is now okay...and she is conscious," the aide said, adding that Marcos's doctor would a statement shortly.

Marcos, who was a Cabinet minister and governor of metropolitan Manila during her husband's days in power, has had a history of eye illness.

The couple were overthrown in a "people power" revolt in 1986 which ended the late dictator's 20-year rule and forced them to flee to Hawaii, where he died three years later.
