NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama was discharged from a Delhi hospital on Friday after a chest infection, his press secretary said.

The 83-year-old Nobel peace laureate, who was brought to the capital from his base in a northern Indian hill station for treatment, had recovered from the infection, Tseten Samdup Chhoekyapa said.

The Dalai Lama fled to India in early 1959 after a failed uprising against Chinese rule and lives in exile in Dharamsala.
