Argentine rocker in critical condition after 'mini-stroke'

Argentine rock star Gustavo Cerati remained in critical but stable condition following brain surgery for a "mini-stroke" he suffered over the weekend, his doctors said Thursday.

Cerati, whose former band Soda Stereo is among the best known rock bands from Latin America, was in an induced coma at a Caracas, Venezuela, hospital.

"At the moment there is no evidence of neurological deterioration compared to yesterday," hospital director Adolfredo Saez said. "His other organs and systems are functioning normal. Like we have said, his situation is critical."
