Former Lebanese president has heart procedure

Former Lebanese president has heart procedure

Lebanon's official news agency says former Lebanese President Amin Gemayel has successfully undergone a heart catheterization.
The agency says the investigatory procedure to measure how well the heart is pumping was done Tuesday and the former president will remain for a time at a Beirut hospital.
The 67-year-old Gemayel leads the right-wing Christian Phalange party, which is part of pro-Western parliamentary majority coalition.
During his 1982-88 term in office, Gemayel negotiated a peace agreement with Israel that he later refused to sign as Lebanon descended into one of the worst rounds of the 1975-90 civil war.
