Mubarak in Critical Condition

Deposed and disgraced Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak is in critical condition Sunday, according to an Egyptian security official. Rumors swirled that through the country that the man had already died, just a little more than a week after a judge sentenced him to life in prison for his complicity in the deaths of protesters during the popular uprising last year that led to the toppling of his regime. Mubarak’s wife and daughters-in-law visited the former president in prison Sunday morning, according to the official. Mubarak’s health has deteriorated rapidly since his sentencing, with officials saying earlier this week that he had entered a “dangerous” phase.
