Lung operation for Papandreou

Click to follow
Athens - Doctors operated yesterday to remove fluid from Andreas Papandreou's lungs as the Greek Prime Minister's socialist party, Pasok, pondered a visit to ask for his resignation. A hospital statement described his condition as stable.

The conservative New Democracy party, meanwhile, said it would introduce a censure motion next week; the party has accused Pasok of "following obstructive tactics and putting off decisions'' during Mr Papandreou's illness. AP
