Egypt's Mubarak in 'full coma'
A spokesman for Egypt's Interior Ministry says the country's former leader, Hosni Mubarak, entered into a "full coma" on Monday. Mubarak is in a prison hospital after being sentenced to life in prison for presiding over the killing of pro-democracy activists during last year's Arab Spring protests. His sons have requested that they be allowed to be at the 84-year-old's bedside, and a prison authority has agreed to allow it.
 
In his first statement since his February ouster, former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak says he is being unfairly attacked with corruption charges.
