Palestinian premier leaves hospital after 2-days

RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) -

An aide says Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad has been discharged from a West Bank hospital after undergoing two days of tests and treatment.

   Fayyad, 61, checked into Ramallah Hospital with abdominal pain Monday, apparently caused by a problem with his pancreas.

   His spokesman, Jamal Zakout, said Fayyad left the hospital on Wednesday.

   Fayyad, a smoker, suffered a heart attack two years ago while visiting family in the United States.

   Since 2007, Fayyad has been prime minister of the Palestinian Authority, the self-rule government that administers parts of the West Bank.
