SALT LAKE CITY — President Thomas S. Monson, the leader of the LDS Church, is in the hospital.

“President Monson was not feeling well last evening and was admitted to the hospital,” Eric Hawkins, a spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said Tuesday. “He has received treatment and fluids and will hopefully be released soon.”
