Iraqi President Jalal Talabani is recovering well from his weekend collapse from exhaustion and a pulmonary inflammation and no more medical tests are planned, the Iraqi ambassador said Tuesday. "He's in good shape, fully aware and doing well," Ambassador Saad al-Hayyani told The Associated Press. "There are no tests planned today." The ambassador declined to say whether Talabani would be discharged from his Amman hospital, the King Hussein Medical City, soon so he can return to Iraq. Talabani, 73, fell ill Sunday in Sulaimaniyah, his hometown in northeastern Iraq, and was unconscious when rushed to hospital. But he recovered sufficiently to be flown to neighboring Jordan that night for treatment.
