The former Egyptian president is thought to be 'close to death' after suffering a stroke
Former President Hosni Mubarak, 84, who was jailed for life for his role in the death of thousands of protesters during his 30-year rule in Egypt, is said to be criticall ill and 'close to death'.

Mubarak may be nearing death after suffering from a stroke and has been placed on life support at Maadi army hospital. The former Egyptian leader is currently said to be unconscious 

Conflicting reports had caused confusion regarding Mubarak’s state of health which caused both supporters and opponents to congregate outside the military hospital throughout the night.

The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (Scaf), the ruling military council, has denied reports that Mubarak was clinically dead while thousands of people protested in Cairo’s Tahrir Square against actions taken by the Scaf to assume new authority which have been called a ‘military coup’ by activists.
