Pope's brother back to hospital

Pope Benedict XVI's brother, Monsignor Georg Ratzinger, was admitted to a German hospital on Wednesday, a church spokesman said, a month after he was discharged from an Italian clinic where he was fitted with a pacemaker.

Ratzinger's admission to a hospital in the southern city of Regensburg was a "precautionary measure," Philip Hockerts, spokesman for the Bishopric of Regensburg, told The Associated Press.

Ratzinger, 81, the German-born Pope Benedict's older brother, was music director of Regensburg Cathedral for three decades before retiring in 1994.
