Suharto battles systemic infection


Jakarta, Indonesia : Former Indonesian President Suharto’s condition deteriorated Tuesday as doctors kept him sedated and worked to fight off a systemic infection, the head of his medical team said.

Suharto remains on a respirator and is suffering from pneumonia, said Mardjo Soebiandono. His condition has been fluctuating, but remains grave, CNN reported.

Doctors at Pertamina Hospital said earlier they would continue to keep Suharto, 86, on a ventilator until all his organs stop functioning.
