Iraqi President Jalal Talabani left his Jordanian hospital on Wednesday to fly back to Baghdad. Talabani was admitted to hospital in Amman on February 25, hours after he collapsed in northern Iraq from what was diagnosed as exhaustion and dehydration caused by lung and sinus infections. Talabani fell ill in his hometown Sulaimaniyah, and was unconscious when rushed to the local hospital. But he recovered enough to be flown to neighboring Jordan the same night.
