Farrakhan hospitalised in US Virgin Islands

RECOVERING: Louis Farrakhan

NATION OF Islam leader Louis Farrakhan was hospitalised in the U.S. Virgin Islands, after reportedly suffering from a low-grade fever.

Farrakhan’s representative Akbar Muhammed told the Associated Press that the 79-year-old sought medical care yesterday [Dec 4] at St.Thomas hospital before confirming that he has since checked out, describing his current condition as “fine.”

Farrakhan, who is on a Caribbean tour to islands including Barbados, Dominica, and the Bahamas, was scheduled to give a speech on the island of St. Croix but had to cancel due to his ill health.

The Chicago native has had a number of health problems over the years, including prostate cancer surgery in 2000 and a five-week hospital stay in 2007.
