A man armed with a submachine gun and a pistol killed four women and wounded two in a mental health clinic Tuesday. He was killed by police who pursued him to a nearby building. Police described the gunman, Eitan Mor, a Jew in his mid-20s, as mentally disturbed. The shooting in the Kiryat Hayovel district appeared unrelated to Arab-Israeli violence. Mor was a patient at the clinic and had been treated by one of the women he shot, Israel Television reported.

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's doctors opted Wednesday to keep him under low-level sedation, slowing their attempts to bring him out of his medically induced coma.

Doctors said early today that they planned to begin reviving Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, a procedure that could provide the best opportunity thus far to assess the extent of brain damage he suffered because of a massive stroke. The 77-year-old prime minister, who has remained in a medically induced coma for four days, continued today in critical but stable condition, as doctors set out to begin easing his sedation and testing his responses.

Doctors said Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon showed more signs of improvement Tuesday, moving both hands and continuing to breathe on his own as he was gradually being awakened from a medically induced coma following a massive stroke six days earlier. Dr. Yoram Weiss, an anesthesiologist at Hadassah University Medical Center who is part of the team treating Sharon, said the prime minister's condition was stable and his life was in "no immediate danger."

In an ominous development, critically ill Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was rushed Friday into his third round of surgery in two days to stem new bleeding in his brain. Doctors said they managed to halt the bleeding, and also took measures to relieve pressure that had built up in Sharon's skull in the wake of the massive cerebral hemorrhage he suffered Wednesday night.

Shlomo Mor-Yosef moves quickly and with determination through the crowd of journalists camped out on the paved driveway of Hadassah hospital. His gaze is fixed straight ahead, flashing cameras trailing him and onlookers pointing with recognition.

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on Saturday survived his latest medical crisis -- one that has served, somewhat poignantly, to underscore the degree to which the Israeli political torch has already passed to his successor, Ehud Olmert. The 77-year-old leader, who has been comatose since suffering a massive stroke more than five weeks ago, was said by doctors to be out of immediate danger after emergency surgery Saturday in which about 1 1/2 feet of his large intestine was removed.

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon hovered between life and death Thursday, under heavy sedation and breathing with the aid of a respirator, as his doctors waited anxiously to assess the effects of a massive cerebral hemorrhage. Doctors may attempt today to bring the 77-year-old leader out of a medically induced coma, into which he was placed following nearly eight hours of intensive and delicate neurosurgery. Or they may wait up to three days to do so.
