DUBAI – Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak has died at the age of 91 on Tuesday (February 25), according to state TV.
Al Watan news website reported that Mubarak died at a military hospital.
Mubarak underwent surgery on January 4, his son Alaa said. He was reportedly receiving intensive care at a hospital earlier this week.
The former strongman stepped down as head of Egypt after 30 years in power when he was ousted in 2011 during the Arab Spring protests.
He spent most of his final years under guard at the Maadi Military Hospital in southern Cairo as he faced charges of corruption and conspiracy to murder.
He was wheeled into court in his hospital bed on several occasions to attend the trai before he was acquitted in August 2014. He was freed on March 24, 2017. ICA/Expat Media
