Zambian President Michael Sata was receiving medical treatment in Israel on Thursday, an Israeli official said without elaborating on his condition.
The disclosure came a day after Zambian Vice President Guy Scott told parliament in Lusaka that Sata, 76, was in Israel on a "working holiday".
"(Sata) is here on a private visit and he is receiving medical treatment," the Israeli official said. "He did not come to lie on a beach." (Reuters)
