Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has been moved out of intensive care at a medical centre in Jerusalem.
The 78-year-old was moved to the unit last week due to an infection that was threatening his heart function, but he has now been transferred back to a respiratory ward.
Sharon has been in a coma since suffering a massive stroke at the start of this year.
He has undergone a number of extensive brain operations since then, as well as several minor procedures.
