Mubarak not dead - Medical source

Convicted Egyptian  ex-president Hosni Mubarak is in a coma and has been placed on an artificial respirator, a medical source says, denying reports that he is dead.

"He is in a coma and the doctors are trying to revive him. He has been placed on an artificial respirator," Disclosed the  source.

Local media  had announced earlier that Mubarak, 84, had been declared clinically dead, saying his heart had stopped beating.

"Hosni Mubarak is clinically dead," the official MENA news agency reported.

"Medical sources told MENA his heart had stopped beating and did not respond to defibrillation."
Mubarak was reportedly transferred from prison to a military hospital in the Cairo district of Maadi earlier on Tuesday evening after suffering a stroke and undergoing defibrillation in prison.

The 84-year-old Mubarak  was sentenced to life behind bars on June 2 for suppressing a revolt against his rule in early 2011 during which nearly 850 protesters were killed.
