JERSUSALEM (AP) –  The medical condition of Israel’s former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is deteriorating further and only “a miracle” could stop the decline, the head of the hospital treating him said Monday.

Dr. Zeev Rotstein, director of the Sheba Medical Center near Tel Aviv, said the comatose Sharon remained in a life-threatening condition.

“Unless there is a turn on the level of a miracle, his condition will get worse and worse from day to day,” Rotstein told reporters at the hospital.
