Thai king temporarily discharged from hospital
BANGKOK, Feb. 27, 2010 (Kyodo News International) -- Thailand's King Bhumibol Adulyadej was temporarily discharged from hospital late Saturday night after being treated there for over five months, local media reported.
Television footage showed the 82-year-old monarch riding in an electric wheelchair.
He eventually left for Chitrlada Palace by car.
It is not known when he will return to the hospital.
He was admitted to the Bangkok hospital on Sept. 19 for lung inflammation, fatigue and fever.
He appeared in public twice since being admitted.
His youngest daughter, Princess Chulabhorn, occasionally said her father spent most of the time at the hospital for physical therapy and he would leave the hospital only when he could walk by himself.
The king's fragile health is a concern for Thais as he has been a vital stabilizing force in the country, especially in times of political conflicts.

Thai king returns to hospital
28 February 2010
King Bhumibol Adulyadej
BANGKOK : Thailand's revered king returned to hospital early Sunday after a brief outing to his Bangkok palace, one of few appearances in public since being admitted five months ago, a hospital official said.
King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world's longest-reigning monarch and regarded as a demi-god by many Thais, attended a private function at his Chitralada Palace on Saturday night, local media reported.
Television footage showed the king, wearing a pink shirt, in his wheelchair viewing the river in front of the Siriraj hospital in Bangkok, paying homage to a statue of Buddha and being driven to the palace in a motorcade.
"His Majesty went back to the hospital at 1:00 am," a hospital official said on condition of anonymity.
The 82-year-old monarch has been a stabilising force during six politically turbulent decades on the throne, but Thailand has been rocked by four years of rival political protests that have sometimes turned violent.
King Bhumibol was admitted to Siriraj hospital on September 19 with a lung infection and fever. He has appeared in public several times since then.
