McAfee discharged from Guatemala hospital: official
US Internet security guru John McAfee was discharged from a Guatemala police hospital Thursday after being admitted with what his lawyer called "heart problems," AFP reports citing a hospital official.
The official, Oscar Gonzalez, told reporters that tests showed McAfee was likely suffering from "anxiety and high blood pressure" but did not reveal any cardiac malfunction. McAfee is to be deported to Belize over a murder probe.
McAfee, who had been on the run for weeks from Belizean authorities, was taken back to a detention facility in Guatemala City once doctors determined the 67-year-old American's life was not in danger, Gonzalez said.
The software pioneer applied for asylum in Guatemala after fleeing across the border over the weekend, but that request was rejected. He is wanted for questioning over the murder last month of his American expatriate neighbor in Belize.
His lawyer Telesforo Guerra said earlier that McAfee had suffered two heart attacks early Thursday. Another lawyer for McAfee, Karla Paz, said he was admitted because of "heart problems" and chest pains.
"He says he feels fine. They prescribed medication and he is taking it," Guerra said before the hospital official spoke to reporters.
