Mubarak wants to die at home: reportFebruary 17th, 2011 - 12:10 pm ICT by IANS
Cairo, Feb 17 (IANS/AKI) Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak has rejected four offers to settle in other Arab countries because he wants to die in Egypt, newspaper Masri El Yum reported citing unnamed sources. Mubarak, 82, has been living with his oldest son Alaa in Sharm el-Sheikh since resigning amid protests Feb 11.
The same sources told the Egyptian newspaper that Mubarak plans to continue writing his memoirs, something that has been interrupted by illness.
A medical source from the International Medical Center of the Armed Forces (IMC) said Mubarak suffered from pancreatic cancer and not from an inflamed gall bladder as was reported by media, the report said.
Mubarak stepped down as a result of the popular protests that swept his country starting Jan 25.
A former Egyptian air force commander, Mubarak was appointed vice president in 1975 and assumed the presidency of Egypt Oct 14, 1981, after the assassination of Anwar El Sadat by Islamist army officers.
