fter suffering a stroke and being transferred from prison to a military hospital, ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is said to be in a coma but no longer on life support, as Egypt continues to struggle with its transition to democracy. For a time Tuesday, Egypt's state-run media agency reported that Mubarak was "clinically" dead, but senior officials later said that wasn't the case. Amid the uncertainty about Mubarak's health, tens of thousands of Egyptians protested in Cairo Tuesday in response to interim military leaders having claimed additional powers after the country's first democratic presidential election. Official election results have not been announced, and both run-off candidates — former premier under Mubarak, Ahmed Shafik, and the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi — are claiming victory.
