George Bush Sr celebrates 90th birthday
(06-12 19:35)

Former US President George H W Bush is celebrating his 90th birthday.
A guest list for a private dinner in his honor includes more than 200 relatives and friends, a family spokesman said.
His children, including former President George W Bush and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, will be there, spokesman Jim McGrath said.
During his presidential years, Bush was known for jogging, tennis and fast-paced golf but now uses a wheelchair because of a form of Parkinson's.
He marked his 75th, 80th and 85th birthdays by skydiving.--AP
