Brain scans performed on former prime minister Ariel Sharon this week suggested there was a chance for some improvement in his condition, an aide to the former prime minister told AFP on Friday. Sharon has been comatose since he suffered a stroke seven years ago.

Raanan Gissin said that Sharon underwent MRI scans at Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba on Thursday. "The test was routine, but the results not entirely so," Gissin told AFP. "There was some kind of positive indication."

He did not offer any further details.
