Egyptian officials deny Mubarak 'clinically dead' after suffering stroke in prison
Cairo, June 20 (ANI): Egyptian officials have denied reports that ousted President Hosni Mubarak is clinically dead after he suffered a stroke and slipped out of consciousness at a Cairo prison hospital in.
Egypt's state news agency said that Mubarak was declared "clinically dead" after he was transferred from a prison hospital to a nearby military hospital.
Other media reports also claimed that the 84-year-old Mubarak, who was sentenced to life in prison this month for complicity in the deaths of hundreds of protesters in last year's uprising, was on life support.
A CNN report quoted General Mamdouh Shahin, a member of the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, as saying that Mubarak 'is not clinically dead as reported, but his health is deteriorating and he is in critical condition.'
Shortly afterward, Egypt's Nile TV stated that Mubarak was in the military hospital's intensive care unit and "his health was slightly improving," The Los Angeles Time reports.
Mubarak, a close U.S. ally who ruled Egypt for three decades, has suffered from a number of ailments including depression, heart attacks, cancer and hypertension.
His last public appearance was at his sentencing hearing this month. (ANI)
