West German Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher was reported "in good shape" today after suffering a minor heart attack.

Genscher, 62, was hospitalized Thursday after complaining of chest pains. Genscher, who has been Bonn's foreign minister since 1974, had his first heart attack 12 years ago.
