Question of the Day
Mubarak in hospital after probe summons
CAIRO | Ousted President Hosni Mubarak was admitted to a hospital on Tuesday, two days after he was summoned to take part in an investigation by the public prosecutor, according to a judicial source and the website of a state newspaper.
Egypt’s public prosecutor on Sunday summoned Mr. Mubarak, who was ousted on Feb. 11 after nearly 30 years in office, as part of investigations into the killing of protesters and embezzlement of public funds.
Mr. Mubarak, 82, has denied allegations of wrongdoing.
“The former president Hosni Mubarak entered … Sharm el-Sheikh hospital,” the website of the state-owned publisher of Al Ahram newspaper said.
It said the president may not have to travel to Cairo to attend the investigation because of his hospital admittance.
Yemenis demonstrate against mediation deal
SANAA | Tens of thousands of Yemenis demonstrated in major cities across the country, rejecting a mediation proposal by neighboring Gulf countries because it does not provide for trying the president.
The six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council called on President Ali Abdullah Saleh on Sunday to step down as part of a deal with the opponents demanding his ouster after 32 years.
The deal, however, did not specify a time frame for the transfer of power to his deputy and included immunity from prosecution for him and his family.
Protesters held banners that read, “After bloodshed, Saleh should be tried” and, “You [Saleh] will not escape unpunished.” Hundreds of army and security officers in uniform, who sided with the protesters, took part in Tuesday’s demonstration.
