Writer García Marquez hospitalised in Mexico

Nobel prize-winning Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez has been hospitalized in Mexico City since March 31 for dehydration and a lung and urinary infection but has responded well to treatment, Mexico's health ministry said today.

The author's discharge from hospital will be evaluated once he completes treatment with antibiotics, the ministry said in a release.

García Márquez, 87, whose career has spanned journalism to fantastical novels that defined the genre of magical realism, lives in Mexico City.

Speaking outside the hospital, his son Gonzalo García, said the author was never under emergency care, and is with family.
