Sunday, February 11, 2024

US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin is back in the hospital for an "emergent bladder issue", the Pentagon has said. In a statement on Sunday, it said the White House had been informed. At about 16:55 local time (21:55 GMT) Mr Austin "transferred the functions and duties of the office" to Deputy Defence Secretary Kathleen Hicks. It comes less than a month after Mr Austin's secretive hospital stay in December sparked controversy, for which he apologised last week.
