'Zardari's health improving'

Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari's health is improving and he is resting at a hospital in Dubal, his office said in a bid to douse rumours of a military coup.

The President House issued a statement Thursday that said he is in a stable condition.

Quoting the physician attending on Zardari in Dubai, the statement said: "The president is stable, comfortable and is resting."

"Initial tests and investigations have been within normal range while further tests will be carried out," the brief statement said.

"The president is recuperating," Associated Press of Pakistan quoted president's spokesperson Farhatullah Babar as saying.

According to the personal physician, Zardari was shifted from ICU to a hospital room Thursday evening, Babar said.

Zardari suddenly left Pakistan for Dubai Tuesday, triggering speculation about his health. There were also rumours of a coup, which US scotched Thursday.
