Download PDF for this date

Likud leader Menahem Beigin, who has been hospitalized in Tel Aviv for several days, will remain in the hospital for another fortnight or so in the wake of a heart problem that arose upon his recent return from Canada.

His doctor, Eliahu Lurie of the Ichilov Hospital, published a bulletin today saying Beigin, 63, “returned from abroad in a fatigued condition and tests showed a contraction of blood cells in the region of the heart. Therefore he was admitted to the hospital for further tests and treatment.”

Earlier it was believed that Beigin was in the hospital for a regular checkup, However, the Likud leader’s condition is not believed serious. He is conducting a good deal of his affairs from his bedside, including a meeting with Moshe Dayan.
