Former prime minister of Trinidad & Tobago Manning hospitalized after stroke
By The Associated Press

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (AP) ' The man who led the resource-rich Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago for nearly 15 years has been hospitalized after an apparent stroke.

Patrick Manning's office says the former prime minister was taken to a hospital early Tuesday. A statement says he apparently suffered a "mild" stroke and is undergoing tests.

His wife Hazel-Ann said on the radio that he is conscious and understands what is being said to him. She called on people to pray for the former leader.

The 65-year-old Manning was prime minister from 1991-1995 and from 2001-2010.

His People's National Movement lost general elections in May 2010. Manning kept his seat in the House of Representatives but was ousted as party leader.
