Leah Rabin Had Cardiac Disturbance

Leah Rabin, the wife of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, suffered a "cardiac disturbance" but not a full-fledged heart attack, her doctors said Monday.

Rabin was hospitalized Saturday after suffering severe chest pains while playing tennis with her husband.

She was rushed to Sheba Hospital of the Tel Hashomer government medical center, near Tel Aviv, and has been resting in the hospital’s intensive care unit since Saturday.

Her doctors said she will be encouraged to get out of bed Tuesday and is due to be discharged from the hospital within three days.
