Military source: Mubarak healthy, has received hundreds of Eid greetings

Recently published reports claiming former President Hosni Mubarak has died or is deteriorating rapidly are false, said on Friday a military source close to the medical team treating Mubarak at the Tora prison hospital.

Mubarak’s condition is stable, aside from some symptoms associated with his age, the source claimed.

The ousted president “has received hundreds of telegrams wishing him happy Eid al-Adha,” the source said, “so he felt that there are still those who support him. Others went to the prison hospital to give him their wishes.”

In June, Mubarak was sentenced to 25 years in prison for failing to prevent the killing of protesters during the 25 January uprising that led to his ouster.
