Spokesman for the Chaim Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer denied rumors regarding the death of former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who is admitted in the hospital in a comatose state. He stated there was no change in Sharon's condition, who suffered a stroke almost five years ago.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Iranian al-Alam TV network reported that Sharon had died. The rumor was spread by the Shia Online radical Islam website and even reached the Twitter social network. (Dudi Cohen)
