Evangelist Reverend Billy Graham has returned to hospital in North Carolina after suffering respiratory problems.

The 95 year old was admitted to Mission Hospital in Asheville earlier this week (beg18Nov13) with congestion issues. He was last in hospital at the beginning of October (13) for a related health concern.

Graham also checked in to the medical centre in August, 2012 with bronchitis.

His spokesman Mark DeMoss says, "We expect he will be able to return home in a day or two."
