Philadelphia (US): Vice President Joe Biden`s
elder son has spent the night in a hospital in Philadelphia
after suffering a mild stroke.
Doctors say Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden suffered
a mild stroke but is expected to recover.

The younger Biden was fully alert and speaking, according
to the doctor who treated him in Delaware on Tuesday, before
he was transferred to Philadephia.

The vice president gave a thumbs-up sign to reporters as
his motorcade left the Philadelphia hospital yesterday night
after visiting his son.

Forty-one-year-old Beau Biden returned last year from a
yearlong deployment to Iraq with his Army National Guard unit.
