WaASHINGTON 19 Jan – US ex-president George HW Bush, 92, has been moved into the intensive care unit of a Houston hospital for an “acute respiratory problem” due to pneumonia, his office says.

He is “stable and resting comfortably” after undergoing a procedure to clear his airway that required sedation, according to a statement.

His wife, Barbara Bush, 91, has been admitted to the same Houston Methodist Hospital as a “precaution” due to fatigue and coughing. – dpa
