As Sharon lays unconscious, debate intensifies over doctors' decisions

World

Ariel Sharon's doctors came under criticism on Thursday for failing to divulge a brain disease disovered after an initial, mild stroke suffered by the prime minister and for prescribing drugs that may have been inappropriate for a patient suffering from it, possibly causing his second, massive stroke.

The criticism added to a growing chorus of questions about Sharon's treatment, and whether his doctors' decisions were the right ones. Some experts, however, said there was no right or wrong.
