Brent Swails, Jason Hanna and Ralph Ellis of CNN are reporting Nobel Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, 84,  has been readmitted to a hospital after displaying signs of an infection following surgery he had earlier this month. The reporters write:

“The 84-year-old Nobel laureate had spent three weeks in a Cape Town hospital, from last month until Wednesday, to receive treatment for a recurring infection, and he had minor surgery to address the issue. On Saturday, his wife, Leah, said that the surgical wound itself was showing signs of infection. Tutu underwent hospital tests for a persistent infection in 2013. A year later, he canceled travel plans because of a long-running battle with prostate cancer, first diagnosed in 1997.”

Archbishop Desmond Tutu won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his work to end apartheid.
