December 31, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Former Bosnian President Alija Izetbegovic was in stable condition in a Riyadh hospital, where he was flown after suffering heart trouble, a hospital official said.

Izetbegovic, 76, arrived in the Saudi capital Saturday evening. His condition improved after admission to the cardiac unit of King Faisal Specialist Hospital, the official said.

Izetbegovic has a weak heart caused by blockage of the arteries, said the official.

Izetbegovic was flown to Saudi Arabia because his condition deteriorated after he checked into a hospital in Bosnia-Herzegovina, an official from his party said Saturday.
