Posted on Jun 11, 2012

Mubarak’s health appears to have seriously deteriorated since his June 2 conviction for the killing of pro-democracy demonstrators last year. Officials said last week that he had been placed on a ventilator several times, one of many such reports since his April 2011 arrest. He was bedridden during the trial and attended court on a gurney.
