Sen. Edward M. Kennedy hospitalized with symptoms of stroke

WASHINGTON - Sen. Edward M. Kennedy was airlifted to a hospital Saturday after suffering a seizure at his home, and did not appear to have had a stroke as initially suspected, his spokeswoman said. The 76-year-old Democrat, the lone surviving son in a famed political family, was undergoing tests at Massachusetts General Hospital to determine the cause of the seizure, spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said. "Senator Kennedy is resting comfortably, and it is unlikely we will know anything more for the next 48 hours," she said. Kennedy's wife, Victoria, his children and Caroline Kennedy were among those with him at the hospital.

Thousands of Chinese earthquake victims fled areas near the epicenter Saturday, fearful of potential floods from a river blocked by landslides. Soldiers carried older people out of Beichuan town one of the areas hit hardest by the magnitude 7.9 quake Monday while survivors cradled babies on a road jammed with vehicles and people. The death toll jumped to near 29,000. A policeman told The Associated Press that rescue officials were worried that water from the choked river would inundate the town.
