Former Taiwan president taken to hospital

Former Taiwan president taken to hospital

A Taiwanese lawmaker says former President Chen Shui-bian is being taken to a Taipei hospital and that a court proceeding against him has been suspended.
Lai Ching-te of Chen's Democratic Progressive Party says the Taipei District Court ordered Chen to be evaluated for a possible injury stemming from a blow to the head he received earlier in the day en route to the court building.
There was no additional information on the circumstances of the injury.
Chen's late Tuesday court appearance was scheduled to determine if he should be formally detained on corruption charges.
