Actress Gabor home after surgery

Gabor had surgery on 6 July after experiencing numbness
Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor has returned home following a minor stroke and emergency surgery to clear a blocked artery at a Los Angeles hospital.

Her ninth husband, Frederic von Anhalt, said his 88-year-old wife was "now even better than she was before. She's walking around already".

"This operation was really a miracle. This operation saved her life" he said.

The Hungarian-born actress is best known for films like Queen of Outer Space and her multiple marriages.

Gabor had surgery on 6 July after experiencing numbness at her Bel-Air home. It was the actress' second stroke.

"She was numb," said von Anhalt. "She was alert, but she had no feeling in her hand and couldn't pick up anything."

Gabor is currently embroiled in a courtroom battle with her only daughter, Francesca Hilton, over claims that she defrauded Gabor of $2m (1.1m) to buy a new house.

In 2002 she was involved in a car accident that left her partially paralysed.
