Jesse Jackson was admitted to Howard University Hospital early today suffering from respiratory problems. A hospital spokeswoman said the civil rights leader was diagnosed as having sinusitis and said his condition was good.

He was taken to the hospital after suffering from breathing difficulties while staying at the Howard Inn, said Sylvia Branch, executive assistant to Jackson. She said Jackson is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days.
