    Mahathir was discharged Thursday after doctors determined he was in no further danger, said Alawiyah Yussof, a spokeswoman for the National Heart Institute.
     

    The former leader, who travels regularly for speaking engagements, said last week he would cut back his hectic schedule on his doctors' advice.

     

    Mahathir led Malaysia for 22 years until 2003 and stepped down after hand-picking Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to replace him.

     

    But last year, Mahathir began attacking Abdullah, accusing him of corruption, nepotism and mismanaging the economy.
