Egypt's interim PM hospitalized for fatigue, spokesman says

[Update] Interim Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Sharaf was being treated for exhaustion and fatigue at a Cairo hospital late Monday, but had not suffered a stroke as reported earlier, his spokesman said.

The spokesman, Ahmed Saman, said doctors were giving Sharaf X-rays late Monday at Cairo's Dar Al Fouad Hospital. No details of his condition were immediately available.

Sharaf has been leading a caretaker government under the military council that took power in February, when former President Hosni Mubarak resigned in the face of a popular revolt.

News of his illness came the same day as a much-anticipated reshuffle of the Cabinet, with replacements announced for 14 of 27 ministers replaced.

    I had it in Cairo.
    The doctor came to my apartment three times in one day, and I think I had an out-of-body experience.

    It would be great indeed if this Essam Sharaf suddenly stopped pandering to the right-wing thugs in Washington and decided to install a Socialist government in Egypt and made that country once more a non-aligned nation as it was under Pres. Nassar.

      Here's Herbert the Pervert!, another dirty-minded Tea Partier or is he? Could this be the Tea Partier Juan Banuelos posting under a new name? Either way, this bozo was inspired by Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and the Tea Partying crowd to post his mumbo-jumbo here so that they can have their thoughts read on this web page!
