The Rev. Jesse Jackson, 66, has been released from a Chicago hospital, two days after he was admitted for severe stomach pains.

A spokeswoman for Jackson's civil rights organization, Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, said tests determined that Jackson was suffering from viral gastroenteritis -- an infection caused by a number of viruses.

His office later said he had been stricken by food poisoning and was severely dehydrated.
