Political rumor mills already have started whirling over the health of Foreign Minister Michio Watanabe, 68, and the effect it may have on the future of Prime Minister Kiichi Miyazawa. Widely regarded as the most likely successor to Miyazawa, Watanabe underwent a 2 1/2-hour gallstone operation Tuesday during which his gallbladder was removed. Doctors said he was "in highly satisfactory condition." No evidence emerged to contradict that report.

Prime Minister Keizo Obuchi has suffered a stroke and was hospitalized in intensive care, and Chief Cabinet Secretary Mikio Aoki has temporarily assumed his duties, Aoki announced today. Aoki gave scant details about Obuchi's medical condition, except to say that the 62-year-old Japanese leader had been conscious about 7 p.m. Sunday, when he was able to speak without difficulty and told Aoki to take over if he were unable to leave the hospital immediately.
