The director of the hospital treating Ariel Sharon said the Israeli prime minister is unlikely to recover.

“There is a chance the prime minister will wake up. The chances are not great but it is not something that can be ruled out,” Prof. Shlomo Mor-Yosef, director of Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital, said Monday at a medical conference in Tel Aviv. “The condition he will be in if he wakes up is still an open question.” Sharon has been in a coma since a Jan. 4 stroke.
