Cairo, July 18 :   The head of the medical team supervising Hosni Mubarak's health denies the ex-president suffered a stroke or is in a coma.


Doctor Assem Azzam said Sunday that 83-year old Mubarak had suffered a bout of low blood pressure but was now stable.

Mubarak's lawyer Farid el-Deeb said earlier that the ousted Egyptian president had suffered a stroke and was in a coma. However, the doctor said Mubarak only suffered low blood pressure and felt dizzy. Azzam said he was in stable condition.

Mubarak has been in a hospital in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh since April under arrest on charges he ordered the killings of protesters during Egypt's uprising. He is said to be suffering from heart trouble.  AP
