PM Lee Hsien Loong posts photo taken from hospital ward where he is recovering

SINGAPORE - Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Tuesday posted on his Facebook a photo taken from the window of the hospital ward where he is recovering from a surgery.

Mr Lee, who had been diagnosed with prostate cancer in January, underwent surgery on Monday morning at the Singapore General Hospital to remove his prostate gland.

"Snapped this pic from the hospital window this morning, when the physiotherapist got me to walk up and down my ward. You can see the Duke-NUS Medical School on the left, and the new Academia building on the right," PM Lee wrote.



The Prime Minister's Office said on Monday that Mr Lee's surgery was a success.
