Nobel laureate Mother Teresa was moved out of intensive care after more than a month of treatment for heart problems, doctors said. "She is doing very well, and she has no discomfort," they said in a statement. The Press Trust of India news agency said the 79-year-old Roman Catholic nun was moved to a post-cardiac unit of the Woodlands Nursing Home, the Calcutta hospital to which she was admitted Sept. 5 with a high fever and irregular heartbeat. The Yugoslav-born nun was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 for her work with the poor in Calcutta.
