Former US and Israeli ally Hosni Mubarak is dead.
He was moved to the hospital after his stroke.
And it was confirmed in the same hospital where Sadat was also confirmed dead.
Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, 84, was declared clinically dead shortly after arriving at a military hospital in Cairo, where he was taken after suffering a stroke and cardiac arrest, medical sources told the state-run Mena News Agency.
Official reports of the stroke and cardiac arrest came earlier Tuesday. Adel Saeed, spokesman of the Egyptian prosecutor, had told CNN that Mubarak’s heart had stopped, and that personnel revived him with “electric shocks and CPR.” State-run Nile TV reported that Mubarak suffered a stroke.
Mubarak, 84, was sentenced to life in prison June 2 for the killing of pro-democracy demonstrators last year. He already was suffering from health problems and attended court on a gurney.
UPDATE: Several senior Egyptian officials are now refuting a state news agency’s report that former president Hosni Mubarak is “clinically dead.”
