    A source in the Egyptian security apparatus also denied the rumors.

    Media reports on Sunday said Mubarak had suffered a severe heart attack. The reports cited information from employees at the International Medical Center, where Mubarak is a patient, who said there was activity near Mubarak’s room and doctors were overheard to say he was on the verge of death.

    Mubarak stepped down on February 11 after anti-government protests that broke out in Cairo. In April Mubarak was admitted to a hospital in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.
