Palestinian PM Recovering from Heart Attack in Austin

Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad reportedly suffered a heart attack while attending his son's graduation from the University of Texas on Sunday.

Fayyad's future as prime minister has been up in the air following a reconciliation deal struck this month between the Fatah Palestinian faction that governs the West Bank and the Hamas Islamist faction that holds sway in the Gaza Strip.

Fayyad is reportedly in stable condition and recovering at Seton Medical Center in Austin.
