Egypt: Mubarak In Coma


Egypt’s ousted President Hosni Mubarak has fallen into a coma, his lawyer said on Sunday.

“I was informed about the sudden deterioration in Mubarak’s health and I am now on my way to Sharm el-Sheikh. All that I know so far is that the president is a full coma,” Mubarak’s lawyer Farid el-Deeb told Reuters.
