Former Egyptian President Mubarak hospitalized

[Updated at 6:09 p.m. ET] Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was admitted to a hospital Tuesday after complaining to his doctor that he felt unwell, according to a spokesman for the Egyptian military.

A military source said Mubarak's condition was stable, not critical, and that his wife and elder son were with him.

Egyptian state television reported Mubarak suffered a heart attack during questioning over possible corruption charges. When contacted by CNN, however, the prosecutor's office denied any reports Mubarak had been questioned by authorities Tuesday.

    Sorry, I meant Mubarak is faking illness to avoid prosecution. Mind you, I thought that about the Shah of Iran years ago, but he was actually terminal.

    I hope they find all his "hidden" money and seize it. Then put him on trial and convict him for the crimes he's committed. But then again, as IKHAN correctly said, "Big deal". The guy doesn't deserve to be noted.

    Best thing, take away all his money and ship him off to Point Nocean where he can live out the rest of his life. That's better.
