Gamal Mubarak reportedly flees Egypt

Longtime president’s son once seen as likely successor


 

The son of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Gamal Mubarak, has reportedly fled Egypt for the UK with his family. Unconfirmed reports out of Cairo say the younger Mubarak boarded a private jet bound for London with his family and nearly one hundred pieces of luggage. His departure, if confirmed, comes after a day of unprecedented mass protests in the streets of Cairo and other cities throughout Egypt. Over 30,000 people gathered in Cairo’s Tahrir Square to protest the Mubarak regime, which has run the country for 30 years under a state of emergency and with little tolerance for dissent. One riot police officer has been confirmed killed, and about 600 people were arrested in the Cairo protests. Gamal Mubarak’s departure from Egypt comes on the heels of Tunisian President Ben Ali’s flight from Tunisia following violent anti-government protests in Tunis.

  46. I`m not sure that`s only what it took to make them leave they wont leave until the 80 million egyptians go out to the streets and shout, even then they will say it wasnt a big protest like they said about today !!!!

  47. Hopefully Mubarak himself will leave the country soon. 30 years of bad ruling is enough. 30 years of poverty and fake promises to develop the economy is enough. 30 years of cheating and faking the election results is enough. 30 years of ruling Egypt by enforcing emergency laws is enough. Out Mubarak out!

  48. not very confident about this news, might be true or false.
    where is the evidence that this did happen…..!!!

    Mubarak was just the lesser of two evils who let it go to his head.

    Wouldn't this be a cool reason to look back at 2011 with fondness in the future?

    I dont want Gamal to leave Egypt. I would like him to stay and give me a fair trailer. A death sentense wouldnt be enough for him and his father.

    Down with the dictator and his family.

    Don't you people have any appreciation of the damage you can do to a whole country by disseminating such virulent garbage.
    Gamal Mubarak was at the party news conference in Cairo this afternoon.
    If you cannot get your facts right at least do no harm.

    Let get on with their job.
    They last thing they need is your type of inept harmful reporting.

He perpously kept Egypt DOWN for his (your) paymasters so as to not be perceived as an "existential" threat to America's "chosen" little friend AND No.1 Welfare Queen….. One thing is certain, he was more friendly with America's stooges that America's critics… in spite of the war about non-existent WMDs in Iraq that killed a MILLION INNOCENT MUSLIM ARABS…… He is America's tool….. not the instrument of the Egyptian people…
