Conflicting reports swirled in Egypt on Wednesday about the health of former President Hosni Mubarak as a power struggle looms over who will succeed him following his ouster last year.
MENA, a state news agency, reported he was clinically dead late Tuesday. The nation’s military rulers quickly denied it.
“He is not clinically dead as reported, but his health is deteriorating and he is in critical condition,” said Gen. Mamdouh Shahin, a member of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces.
