Sharon suffers major stroke

Update from The Jerusalem Post: "After a six-hour operation for cerebral hemorrhaging that continued for most of Wednesday night, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was returned to the operating room following a CAT scan that revealed additional areas of cerebral bleeding."

Sharon suffered "a massive brain hemhorrage" late yesterday. Doctors have suggested that "Sharon's brain hemorrhage was complicated by the blood thinners that the prime minister has been receiving twice daily since his first, minor, stroke some two weeks ago." (I wrote about that here.)

According to Haaretz: "On Wednesday night, Sharon's prime ministerial authority was transferred to Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Olmert." An emergency Cabinet meeting will be held this morning.
