RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's heart test results were normal, a Palestinian doctor said on Thursday, after the 81-year-old leader was hospitalised in the occupied West Bank.

"The president was hospitalised today for routine tests and we performed a (cardiac) catheterization. The results look normal and he will leave hospital in the next two hours," Saeed Sarahneh, a senior doctor at Esteshari Hospital in the city of Ramallah, told reporters.
