HIDE CAPTION


MADRID (AP) - A British boy who was taken from a U.K. hospital without doctors' consent is on his way to Prague with his parents for treatment for his brain tumor.

A spokeswoman for the hospital in Spain's southern city of Malaga where 5-year-old Ashya King spent the last week says the boy left in the morning and boarded a medically equipped plane heading for the capital of the Czech Republic.

The boy's parents, Brett and Naghmeh King, were arrested by Spanish police after they took Ashya from a hospital in the English city of Southampton and drove him to Malaga. They spent a night in jail but were released after British authorities canceled the arrest warrant.

The Kings want their son to be treated with proton beam technology available in Prague.
