King’s widow admitted to Atlanta hospital

ATLANTA (Reuters) - Coretta Scott King, the widow of slain
civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., has been admitted
to an Atlanta hospital, a hospital official said on Tuesday.

"She is here and is resting comfortably," said Diana Lewis,
a spokeswoman for Piedmont Hospital. Lewis would not give any
further details on King's condition or when she had been
brought to the hospital.

King, 78, was treated earlier this year for a heart
condition at the same hospital.
