Bangladesh's figurehead president, Iajuddin Ahmed, has been hospitalized after he complained of chest pain, his press secretary said Wednesday.
Ahmed was in a "stable condition" on Wednesday at Dhaka's Combined Military Hospital, his press secretary Mukhlesur Rahman Chowdhury told The Associated Press.
The 75-year-old president is "under the observation" of a five-member medical team, Chowdhury said.
He said Ahmed went to the hospital late Tuesday after he suffered chest pain at his official residence, Bangabhavan.
The president has a history of heart problems, Chowdhury said, without providing further details.
"The president has been admitted to hospital for a medical checkup," said a press statement issued by the president's office. It did not elaborate.
Doctors at the military hospital were not immediately available for comment, reports the AP.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
