    Melania Trump attends first public event since kidney operation

    US First Lady Melania Trump, not seen in public since a hospital operation three weeks ago, has quashed rumours about her health by tweeting an image of herself at a White House event.
    In the photo she is seen at the event, held for military veterans on Monday, sitting with President Donald Trump.
    “Honoured to pay tribute to our fallen heroes,” read a tweet posted on her official Twitter account.
    She had not been seen in public since undergoing kidney surgery on 10 May.
    The operation, for an “embolisation procedure” to treat a benign kidney condition, was described as relatively minor surgery and was said to be “successful” with “no complications”.
    Mrs Trump, 48, was hospitalised for five days, but her disappearance from the public eye following her surgery led to rumours about her health and marriage.
