The Myanmar Times - - World -

Colom­bian Pres­i­dent Juan Manuel San­tos will travel to the United States for med­i­cal ex­ams af­ter fol­low-up tests for a 2012 case of prostate cancer came back ab­nor­mal. Mr San­tos, this year’s Nobel Peace Prize win­ner for his ef­forts to reach a peace deal with left­ist rebels, an­nounced the trip in a brief state­ment as he left a clinic in Bo­gota where he has un­der­gone reg­u­lar check-ups since hav­ing surgery to re­move a small prostate tu­mour four years ago. The health scare comes as Mr San­tos is strug­gling on mul­ti­ple fronts to end a half-cen­tury con­flict in Colom­bia that has claimed more than 260,000 lives. – AFP
