Literary giant Gabriel García Márquez hospitalized

Baku. Javid Zeynalov – APA. Gabriel García Márquez, widely regarded as one of the most important contemporary Latin American authors, was admitted to a hospital in Mexico earlier this week, according to the Ministry of Health, APA report quoting CNN.

The Nobel Prize recipient, known as "Gabo," had infections in his lungs and his urinary tract. He was suffering from dehydration, the ministry said.
