Official: Zambian president in Israel for medical treatment
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)
