RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — A Palestinian doctor says President Mahmoud Abbas has undergone a cardiac catheterization and all results were normal.
Dr. Mohammed Al-Batrawi, a heart specialist who treated Abbas, said Abbas went through a number of routine tests, including the catheterization on Thursday.
He says Abbas' arteries looked healthy and that Abbas will be discharged from the hospital shortly. The Palestinian leader had been hospitalized earlier in the day after suffering exhaustion and chest pains.
