Casino king Ho undergoes surgery

CASINO mogul Stanley Ho, 87, the father of Macau's fabled gambling industry, has been hospitalized and had surgery in Hong Kong, his office said yesterday.

The statement did not say what surgical procedure the billionaire underwent.

"He is in satisfactory condition and is progressing well in recovery," it said.

The confirmation of Ho's hospitalization came after Hong Kong media reported yesterday on different medical reasons for his stay at Hong Kong Adventist Hospital.

Ming Pao Daily cited Angela Leong, one of the four women Ho calls his "wives," as saying he needed treatment because of a rectal injury that he suffered two years ago following a procedure to relieve constipation.
