The condition of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon - who has been in a coma for six months - has worsened, doctors treating him say. They said there had been a deterioration in his kidney function and changes in the brain tissue over the past two days.
"Over the last two days the condition of Mr Sharon has worsened on the level of the kidneys and an examination of the brain showed a deterioration in the cerebral tissue," said Orly Levy, a hospital spokeswoman.
However, Associated Press news agency quoted former aides to Mr Sharon as saying there was no immediate danger to his life.
