Several senior Egyptian officials are now refuting a state news agency's report that former president Hosni Mubarak is 'clinically dead.' Citing medical sources, the state-run MENA news agency reported that that Mubarak had been declared "clinically dead" after being admitted to a military hospital on Tuesday evening. "Mubarak's heart stopped beating and was subjected to a defibrillator several times but did not respond," the MENA release stated.
However, senior officials, including military leaders, have now contradicted that earlier report. Gen. Mamdouh Shahin, a member of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, reportedly told CNN that Mubarak "is not clinically dead as reported, but his health is deteriorating and he is in critical condition."
