Jordan's Queen Rania has heart procedure in US

The Royal Palace says Jordan's Queen Rania has undergone a non-surgical procedure in New York to correct an irregular heartbeat.

The 40-year-old Rania accompanied her husband, King Abdullah II, who attended the U.N. General Assembly meetings in New York. She also attended separate functions, including a panel on empowering girls.

A palace statement on Monday says Rania had a catheterization to restore a healthy heart rhythm.

The statement says the procedure went smoothly and that Rania is "well" and in "good spirits."

Rania is to remain in a New York hospital for two nights to recuperate and will return home later in the week.
