Ailing ex-Pak PM flown by air ambulance to London

Pakistan’s ailing ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif yesterday left by air ambulance for London, where he is due to receive medical treatment after battling the government for permission to travel, his doctor and close aides said. Sharif, 69, is suffering from an autoimmune blood disorder, has high blood pressure, and his kidney functions are deteriorating, according to aides. He had been in prison serving a sentence for corruption, but was bailed last month to receive treatment. Since then his party and family have been fighting to get his name removed from a travel stop list to allow him to go overseas for treatment.
