Suharto entered the hospital on January 4 for treatment of a failing liver, heart and lungs.

The setback in his health comes just a day after his doctors said he appeared to be making a remarkable recovery.

Suharto was president of Indonesia from 1967 until his resignation in 1998 under immense political pressure.
