Conflicting reports surround Mubarak’s condition

Egypt’s state news agency is reporting that Hosni Mubarak is clinically dead.

“Former president Hosni Mubarak has clinically died following his arrival at Maadi military hospital on Tuesday evening,” MENA is quoted as saying. “Mubarak’s heart stopped beating and was subjected to a defibrillator several times but did not respond.”

However, the New York Times says the 84-year-old leader is on life support at a military hospital in Cairo.

Just more than two weeks ago, Mubarak was sentenced to life in prison for his role in the deaths of protesters during the early days of uprising in 2011.
