Ankara: Turkey's state-run news agency says Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been discharged from hospital a day after undergoing a "second and final" intestinal surgery officials said on Monday.

The Anadolu Agency said Erdogan left hospital late yesterday and was expected to rest at his home in Istanbul.

The 57-year-old Erdogan vanished from public life for nearly a month after an initial surgery on November 26 for non-cancerous intestinal polyps.

His office said he had a second, successful half-hour procedure on Saturday but gave no other details.

It said Erdogan was well and was expected to resume work within the next week.
