    Gloria Arroyo, the former president of the Philippines, has spent the night in hospital after the government prevented her from leaving the country.

    Arroyo is facing corruption charges, but judges have ruled that she may seek medical treatment abroad.

    The government, however, has imposed a travel ban on the former president.

    Al Jazeera's Marga Ortigas reports from Manila, in the Philippines.
