Is Mubarak dead or not? For the past 24 hours this question has been largely discussed on social-networking websites, amongst experts but also within journalists themselves.
After the ex-president was reported dead several times on Tuesday night, including by mainstream media such as Reuters, Egypt's former ruler is now said to be in a stable condition after his lawyer declared that he fell in the prison bathroom, which resulted in a blood clot on his neck, and that he had been removed from the prison at 5pm — long before the reports of his near-death experience began to appear.
The cacophony surrounding the health of ex-president Hosni Mubarak has prompted mockery, serious comments, sarcastic remarks and more. The latest in a series of comical reactions is the creation of a website simply called: ismubarakdead.com.
Created soon after conflicting versions about the health of ex-president Hosni Mubarak emerged, this website is a single page that gives you an answer to the question that has been asked by thousands since last night: Is Mubarak dead? Once you enter the website a large picture of Hosni Mubarak wearing sunglasses appears on the screen with a big white NO.
