Report: Mubarak Unconscious and on Respirator, Not Clinically Dead

Deposed Egyptian ruler Hosni Mubarak, who was overthrown during last year's Arab Spring revolution, is unconscious and on a respirator but, contrary to earlier reports, not clinically dead, Reuters is reporting.

Reports from state news agency MENA indicated earlier that Mubarak had been declared "clinically dead" by a doctor, but more-recent information seems to contradict that claim, with Reuters citing "two security sources" on the updated information.

 

The former Egyptian president ruled the nation for 30 years but had been sentenced to life in prison following his overthrow.

The 84-year-old's health had been declining in recent weeks, with state television reporting that he suffered a stroke earlier on Tuesday and was removed from prison to receive treatment in a hospital, according to the Associated Press.
