Mubarak May (or May not be) Dead

CNN’s e-mail alert states that he is dead.

However, CNN proper reports:  Mixed reports about whether Mubarak has died.

Also, the BBC:  Egypt’s Mubarak ‘close to death’

There are conflicting reports about the health of ousted Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak.

Some media reports say he is clinically dead, but Nile TV said attempts were continuing to revive him.

The 84-year-old is said to have had a stroke, and was moved from prison to life support in an army hospital.

At a minimum he is unwell and near death.
