ANKARA - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan underwent a successful medical procedure on his digestive system and was in good health, his office said on Saturday.

The planned 30-minute procedure was the second and final phase to keyhole surgery performed on Erdogan's lower intestine on Nov. 26, it said.

"The prime minister is in very good health. He plans to continue his routine engagements during the week," his office said in a statement.

His office did not say when the procedure took place, but Turkish media reported that Erdogan, 57, had been taken to a hospital in Istanbul late on Friday.
