US Sen. McCain's mother leaves Portuguese hospital

A Lisbon hospital says it has discharged the 97-year-old mother of U.S. Senator John McCain after a weeklong stay following a fall.
The Sao Jose hospital said Wednesday that Roberta McCain left the neurology ward where she had been under observation.
Senator McCain's office in Washington said his mother had fainted and injured her head last Thursday while on vacation in the Portuguese capital.
It said McCain's wife Cindy would accompany her mother-in-law home.
McCain was the Republican candidate defeated by Barack Obama in the United States' 2006 presidential election.
