Labour Minister Zeta Emilianidou is being treated in a private hospital after a heart attack, the government said on Monday.

Reports said her condition was good.

The Cyprus News Agency (CNA) said the minister had been hospitalised on Friday.

“Her condition is good and stable and not life threatening,” CNA said, quoting an unnamed source close to the minister.

CNA said the minister had undergone a procedure to reopen the arteries at the American Heart Institute.

The government issued a statement on Monday afternoon saying Emilianidou had been hospitalised after a “mild” heart attack.

The six-line statement said President Nicos Anastasiades had visited the minister on Monday.
