Talk of deposed Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak's ill health swirled today after the state news agency bluntly declared that he was "clinically dead." Mubarak was moved from his prison hospital to a Cairo military hospital Tuesday night where he is believed to be in critical condition. Many questioned the veracity of the reports due to
innumerable times he has been declared dead in recent years. Tens of thousands flocked to Tahrir Square on Tuesday night to support the projected victor of the weekend's historic election, Mohammed Morsi, and express their anger with the ruling military council which on Sunday released a constitutional declaration slowing – if not halting altogether – the promised transition to civilian rule.
