By AP Reporter

Former US president Jimmy Carter is out of hospital after being treated for dehydration.

Representatives for Mr Carter and Habitat for Humanity said on Thursday that the 92-year-old had become dehydrated while volunteering at a home-building project in Winnipeg, Canada, and was taken to hospital for rehydration as a precaution.

Carter spokeswoman Deanna Congileo said he was discharged from St Boniface General Hospital on Friday and then attended a devotional to begin the last day of a Habitat for Humanity home-building project. She added: "He and Mrs Carter extend their appreciation for the many well-wishes he received worldwide."
