Sharon’s son sentenced

The week's news at a glance.

Tel Aviv, Israel

The older son of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was sentenced to nine months in prison this week, after pleading guilty to illegal fund-raising for his father’s 1999 campaign. Omri Sharon, 41, had already resigned his Knesset seat in anticipation of the sentence. The court said that since his father remains in a coma following a massive stroke in December, Omri won’t have to start serving his jail time right away. The elder Sharon, who was not implicated in the financing scandal, had part of his intestine removed in a successful operation this week.
