TUNIS - Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi left hospital on Monday in "normal health" and the 92-year-old leader will resume work in the coming days, the president's son said on his Facebook page.

Essebsi, a major player in the North African country's transition to democracy after a 2011 revolution, had been taken to a military hospital on Thursday after suffering a "severe health crisis."
