PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - Haitian President Michel Martelly says he's due back home on Monday after spending two weeks in Miami recovering from a blood clot in his lung.

The leader's office said in a statement Friday that he'll give a news conference upon his return at the airport. His medical team says he is in stable condition.

The 51-year-old Martelly flew to Miami on April 16 after he complained of chest pains. His office said doctors diagnosed him with a blood clot that stemmed from an operation on his right shoulder. The surgery was apparently needed because of pain in his arm from years of performing as a musician.
