Tal Yehoshua Koren, wife of the Israeli defence attaché, who was seriously injured in the car blast here on Monday, was in a “stable condition” and showing signs of early recovery, doctors said on Wednesday.

Ms. Koren, who is an embassy official, suffered shrapnel injuries in the spine, liver and back and was admitted to the Primus Super Speciality Hospital in Chanakyapuri. She was in a state of shock at the time of admission and underwent two surgeries to remove a piece of shrapnel lodged in the spine.

She suffered partial paralysis in the left leg on Tuesday because of a piece of shrapnel that was lodged very close to a nerve. “She has recovered and is talking. All the infection has been cured,” said lead doctor Arun Bhanot.

Regarding reports that Ms. Koren would be flown to Israel after her condition stabilised, Dr. Bhanot said: “We have not been informed of her being taken out. Once she is fit enough to undertake the journey, she will be allowed to travel.”
