MADRID (AP) - Doctors in a Spanish hospital caring for a British boy with a serious brain tumor are finalizing details to enable him to fly for treatment in the Czech Republic.

Southern Malaga’s Childern’s and Maternity Hospital said its medical directors will meet Saturday to review preparations.

The hospital said 5-year-old Ashya King is in a stable condition and a flight to Prague won’t pose a problem to his health. It said a special aircraft will pick him up, but it wasn’t clear when.

The boy’s parents, Brett and Naghmeh King were arrested a week ago by Spanish police after they removed him without medical consent from a hospital in the English city of Southampton and drove him to Malaga. They were later released as the charges against them were dropped.
