MIAMI, Aug 16 (AFP) - Coretta Scott King, the wife of the late US civil rights leader and icon Martin Luther King Jr., has been taken to a hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, where she was said to be resting, a hospital source said Tuesday.
Scott King, 78, was taken to the Piedmont Hospital earlier Tuesday. The wife of the famed civil rights leader was briefly admitted to the same hospital in April for a heart condition.
"She's here at the hospital, we cannot confirm whether or not she's been admitted or not," a hospital source, who requested anonymity said.
"She's here and resting comfortably," the source added.
It is unclear why Scott King -- who founded The King Center in remembrance of her late husband -- was taken to the hospital.
