McAfee taken to hospital after lawyer reports convulsions

[Updated at 3:11  p.m. ET] Software pioneer John McAfee was being transported to a Guatemala City hospital in an ambulance Thursday after his attorney reported he had convulsions.

[Posted at 1:38 p.m. ET] Guatemala has rejected American software mogul John McAfee's bid for asylum, presidential spokesman Francisco Cuevas said Thursday.

McAfee, wanted for questioning in neighboring Belize in connection with the death of his neighbor there, was on the run for weeks and was detained in Guatemala on Wednesday on suspicion of entering the country illegally, officials said.

His lawyer, Telesforo Guerra, filed a formal request for asylum with Guatemalan officials Wednesday.

    For Pity's Sake Esquire, get him home to the U.S. before he dies.
    Viva la American Technology Genius, hang on Mr. McAfee.
    Justice will prevail.
