Ariel Sharon remains in a critical but stable condition according to doctors at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital early on Sunday.
The Israeli leader has undergone three rounds of surgery since being rushed to hospital on Wednesday after suffering a major stroke. Despite there being a chance he will survive, experts are certain the ageing prime minister will have suffered brain damage. Doctors are expected to decide today whether to bring him out of a medically-induced coma so they can assess the extent of brain damage. Sharon already suffered a minor stroke in December but returned to work within days – a decision many have since questioned.
