JERUSALEM (AP) - A Jerusalem hospital official says Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has suffered a "significant" stroke, or more specifically, a cerebral hemorrhage.
Sharon was rushed to the hospital today, after Israeli media reported he complained of chest problems. A doctor says Sharon is under general anesthetic and is receiving breathing assistance.
An Israel Cabinet secretary says Sharon's authorities have been
transferred to Vice Premier Ehud Olmert.
Sharon suffered a mild stroke last month and was due to undergo
a heart procedure tomorrow.
