Mubarak critical, may be dead

Sources in Egypt say that the ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who was being tried for alleged ordering to kill civilians and corruption in Cairo, has suffered a heart attack and may even have died in custody, Russia Today reports. Mubarak, whose health had deteriorated to the point where he had to attend his trial while lying in bed, on Sunday night saw TV reports about Gaddafi’s death, which worsened his condition, the sources claim. The former Egyptian leader suffered a massive heart attack after seeing his long-time friend’s body bloodied and still. Initial reports said the attack was fatal, while later it the sources said Mubarak is rather in critical condition and may pass away at any moment. The reports were difficult to verify immediately, and some media reports in Egypt say the former president is not even in intensive care. The former leader’s lawyer says his client is in good shape.
