( dpa ) - Former Czech president Vaclav Havel was taken to a Prague hospital with heart arrhythmia on Saturday night, public broadcaster Czech Television reported Sunday.
Havel, 71, was not in a serious condition, his assistant Jakub Hladik told the broadcaster, saying, "He currently feels well."
However, he declined to say how long the dissident playwright and former head of state would remain in a hospital, which he did not name.
Havel has suffered from numerous health problems during and after his term as president between 1989 and 2003.
In 1996, doctors removed a portion of Havel's right lung to fight a malignant tumour. Two years later, he underwent colon surgery, during one of which his life was at risk due to heart problems.
