Arafat Suffers Heart Attack

Also has Parkinson's???

From Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | Arafat has suffered heart attack, admits aide:

"Yasser Arafat has suffered a mild heart attack but the Palestinian leadership has sought to keep his health problems secret for fear it will 'create panic'.

The 74-year-old Palestinian president, who is suffering from Parkinson's disease, disappeared from public view last week and re-emerged at the weekend looking extremely ill. His face was pale and pinched, he had lost weight and he was almost inaudible. He had trouble standing for more than a few minutes at a time. "
