Official statement on state of Mubarak health soon: State TV
Egypt's authorities will soon issue a statement on the health of Hosni Mubarak, state television said Wednesday, after conflicting reports said the ex-president was clinically dead or in a coma.
"An official statement will be soon announced" on Mubarak's health, the state Nile News reported. A member of the ruling military council also told AFP there would be a statement issued on Mubarak.
Egypt's state news agency had earlier reported that Mubarak was declared clinically dead on arrival at a military hospital from prison, where he was serving a life sentence.
But medical sources said he was in a coma and on an artificial respirator, an account confirmed by one of the ruling generals.
Mubarak was imprisoned on June 2 for failing to prevent the deaths of protesters during last year's uprising that ended his three-decade rule.
He suffers from a heart condition and high blood pressure, according to reports.

The convenient marriage between Iran and the Arab left would have been unthinkable only a few years ago, given the traditional ideological paradoxes between patriarchal Persian Shiism, on the one hand, and leftist orthodoxy on the other.Indeed, a casual viewer of Hizbullah's Al-Manar television, or the Iranian-funded Al-Mayadin TV, these days would probably think that the two Shia propaganda
