Gabor seriously ill in LA hospital

Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor is in an "extremely serious" condition after having two blood clots removed at a Los Angeles hospital.

Publicist John Blanchette said the 93-year-old actress's husband Frederic Von Anhalt informed him of the seriousness of her condition .

Blanchette described the situation as "very sad".

He said Gabor was in surgery for several hours on Saturday to remove the clots from her upper body, one of them very close to her heart.

The actress was taken to hospital on Friday because she was bleeding and in a lot of pain.

She had just returned home two days' earlier after undergoing hip replacement surgery following a broken hip in July.
