Report: Mubarak Falls into Coma After Final Speech


mubarak2Egypt’s deposed president, Hosni Mubarak, went into a full coma on Motzoei Shabbos at his residence in the Red Sea resort of Sharm al-Sheikh, an Egyptian newspaper reported on Monday, quoting well-informed sources.

Mubarak and his family moved to Sharm al-Sheikh on Thursday night following his final speech, in which he handed over executive authority to former Vice-President Omar Suleiman, Egypt’s al-Masry al-Youm reported.

The same sources said that Mubarak was currently receiving medical treatment but that no decision had yet been made on whether to transfer the 82-year-old former head-of-state to a hospital.

Rumors had circulated earlier that Mubarak had fainted twice while recording his final speech, which was broadcast on state television on Thursday evening.

Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq confirmed Sunday that Mubarak was in Sharm el-Sheikh and has not leave the country.

Mubarak underwent a successful surgery in March 2010 at a German clinic for an inflamed gall bladder. Since then, doubts increased over the former president’s health.



  1. i think this is a made up story to protect his safety and also to increase stability in the country so people should not think that he is still running the show behind the scenes.

  2. Deposed Egyptian president Muhammad Hosni Sayyid Mubarak was taking phone calls from Red Sea resort town Sharm el-Sheikh Tuesday, Reuters reported.

    A source who spoke to him Tuesday told Reuters: “He’s fine. He is at his residence in Sharm-el-Sheikh with his family. He is receiving telephone calls.”

  3. Why is the title “Mubarak falls into coma after final speech” You said that he fell into coma Motzai Shabbos! I think you should pick a better title next time around.
