Former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon's health deteriorated further on Thursday, with his "vital organs" failing, the hospital where he has been housed in a comatose state for eight years said.

"In the last few days, we have seen a gradual decline in the functioning of Ariel Sharon's vital organs, which are essential for his survival," Tel Hashomer hospital director Zeev Rotstein told Israeli public radio.
