Doctors noted a slight improvement Monday in the condition of former president Shimon Peres, as the 93-year-old remained in serious but stable condition nearly a week after suffering a stroke.

Sources close to the senior Israeli statesman said that Peres had been able to respond to simple instructions from doctors on Sunday night, including moving both hands. His motor response may indicate to doctors that Peres hasn't suffered left-side cerebral damage.
