Is Egyptian President Husni Mubarak ill? Unidentified sources say his condition is critical
Yesterday, a London-based Islamist group said Mubarak was in hospital. Within hours state TV showed him talking to his Defence Minister ? the TV station gave the impression that the footage was live. The rumour from London had said that Mubarak was in a critical condition.
The state TV went on to say that another meeting had taken place between Mubarak and an American CIA director, George Tenet. However, their get-together was not shown visually.
According to al-Magreze Centre for Historical Studies, Mubarak?s health started to deteriorate on Tuesday this week.
Last November a speech had to be halted when Mubarak was taken ill. He came back to finish the speech looking noticeably pale and speaking with a hoarse voice. Officials said he had a bad case of flu.
