Sonia Peres Leaves Hospital

Sonia Peres, the wife of Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, was discharged Sunday from Hadassah Medical Center-Hebrew University Hospital in Jerusalem after recovering from heart attack she suffered two weeks ago.

Aides said she was recovering well and would soon be fully up and about.

Her illness forced Peres to cut short an official visit to Spain. Since returning, he has spent long hours by her bedside.
