MOSCOW, August 29. /TASS/. Uzbek President Islam Karimov has suffered brain hemorrhage and is in an intensive care in a stable condition, his daughter Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva wrote on her Instagram page on Monday.

"My father was hospitalised after suffering a cerebral haemorrhage on Saturday morning, and is now receiving treatment in an intensive care unit," Karimova-Tillyaeva said. "His condition is considered stable. At the moment it is too early to make any predictions about his future health."

"I will be very thankful to everyone who wishes to and supports my father by their prayers," she added.

Uzbekistan’s mass media reports said earlier that Karimov, 78, had been hospitalized giving no details about the diagnosis. Karimov has been the president of Uzbekistan since 1991.
