HEIDELBERG/PRISTINA - Kosovo's President Ibrahim Rugova was being treated in a U.S. military hospital in Ladstuhl, western Germany, the U.S. military confirmed Monday.

A U.S. military spokeswoman in Heidelberg refused to disclose any details, saying that Kosovo authorities had asked to inform the public of Rugova's condition.

Rugova was flown in from Kosovo on Saturday, reportedly with a respiratory infection together with a bout of flu, which had confined him to his home over most of the past week.

Rugova, 60, a moderate Kosovo Albanian leader, has held office since 2001. His Democratic League of Kosovo has been the strongest party in parliament since October 2004.
