Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been reported dead at age 91 by Egyptian state news on Tuesday.
The former leader who spent three decades in office died in Cairo, the capital city of Egypt.
Early in January, Mubarak underwent surgery and was photographed with his grandson as he recovered. On Saturday, however, Mubarak’s son Alaa said that his condition had gone worse and was admitted to the intensive care unit of the country’s military hospital.
In 2012, Mubarak was sentenced to life imprisonment over the death of some of the 900 protesters who were killed by security forces during the uprising a year earlier.
Both he and his two sons were also convicted of corruption. He was found guilty of complicity in the killing of protesters during the revolution.
That conviction was overturned and he was freed in March 2017.
