LUSAKA, Apr 13 (Reuters) Zambian President Levy Mwanawasa, admitted to a London hospital two weeks ago for a routine medical check-up, has suffered a minor stroke but is out of immediate danger, state radio reported today.

ZNBC radio reported Chief Government Spokesman Vernon Mwaanga as saying Mwanawasa suffered a minor stroke and was making steady progress.

Mwanawasa was flown to London on April 1 after his blood pressure rose to abnormally high levels, the government said at the time.

Mwaanga told Reuters today a full government statement would be issued within hours.
