(AP) South African former President Nelson Mandela's stay in hospital for unspecified medical tests has stretched into a third day.


On Monday there was no new word on his condition. Government officials have said the 94-year-old anti-apartheid icon is comfortable and receiving medical care that is consistent with his age. Officials have declined to say where Mandela is. The nation's military has been responsible for Mandela's medical care since he had an acute respiratory infection in 2011.


Mandela spent 27 years in prison for fighting racist white rule. He became South Africa's first black president in 1994 and served one five-year term. He has since retired from public life.


Mandela made his last public appearance in 2010. He's grown increasingly frail in recent years.
