Former Egyptian VP Suleiman dies, officials say

Omar Suleiman, the Egyptian vice president under Hosni Mubarak who announced the president’s resignation to the world, has died in a U.S. hospital, officials said Thursday.

He was 76.

An Egyptian official who asked to remain unnamed because he wasn’t authorized to talk with the media said the former spy chief had cancer and traveled to Germany for medical reasons before for heading to a medical center in Cleveland on Monday.
