Former president Jimmy Carter in hospital after brain bleed

Former US president Jimmy Carter is in hospital for surgery to relieve pressure on his brain.

His spokeswoman said the swelling is caused by bleeding due to recent falls.

Mr Carter, 95, is at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, and his wife Rosalynn, 92, is with him.

He has fallen at least three times this year.

His first fall resulted in hip replacement surgery.
