Brazil’s popular former president has been hospitalized.
Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is complaining of fatigue and loss of appetite as he undergoes radiation therapy for throat cancer diagnosed late last year.
The Sirio-Libanes hospital in Sao Paulo said in an emailed statement Saturday that doctors found inflamed tissue in Silva’s throat. They say that’s a normal side affect of his cancer treatment, but they opted to keep him in the hospital overnight for observation.
