JERUSALEM - Prime Minister Ariel Sharon returned to the operating room to undergo emergency surgery Friday after a brain scan showed a raise in cranial pressure and some bleeding, hospital doctors said.

Sharon's vital signs, including cranial pressure, were steady Friday, following emergency brain surgery for a massive stroke, and his doctors said he would remain in a medically induced coma for at least two more days.

"There was an increase in cranial pressure and there were changes in the blood pressure," Mor-Yosef said.

Sharon's aides rushed to the hospital following word of the surgery, the second in two days.

An aide to veteran Israeli politician Shimon Peres, speaking on condition of anonymity because she is not Peres' official spokeswoman, said she had been told Sharon's situation is "not good."
