Democracy Now: Mubarak in Stable Condition After Health Crisis


Ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is reportedly in stable condition after reports of a severe health crisis sparked rumors the imprisoned former leader had already died. Mubarak was said to be slipping in and out of consciousness and experiencing severe depression, and there were reports doctors at the prison hospital had used a defibrillator twice to resuscitate him on Monday. The 84-year-old Mubarak was sentenced to life in prison earlier this month for his role in the killings of peaceful protesters during the uprising that ended his rule last year. His health problems come just days before a runoff presidential election between his former prime minister, Ahmed Shafik, and the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate, Mohamed Morsi.
