Holbrooke in critical condition following aortic surgery

Washington (CNN) - Richard Holbrooke, the well-known U.S. diplomat, was in critical condition at George Washington Hospital on Saturday after undergoing surgery to repair a tear in his aorta, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said in a statement.

Holbrooke, the Obama administration's special representative for Pakistan and Afghanistan, fell ill Friday morning during a meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and walked down to the department's medical unit, a senior State Department official said. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital, the official said.
