    Nelson Mandela is in the hospital for the third time in four months, The Associated Press reports. The 94-year-old former South African president is being treated for a chronic lung infection, and is reportedly responding well to treatment. Mandela has been particularly vulnerable to lung infections since contracting tuberculosis during his 27-year imprisonment. President Jacob Zuma asked citizens of South Africa and the world to pray for Mandela.
