    Is Mubarak in Eilat

    Ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is in a luxury hotel in the Israeli city of Eilat, the Israel-based news site Al-Arab reported Tuesday. Locals said there was a huge presence of Israeli security forces surrounding the hotel, and airplanes were hovering above monitoring activity in the area, the Arabic-language site said. The report said a hotel employee said the Egyptian leader was a guest at the hotel. In recent days the Arab media has been rife with rumors that Mubarak fell into a coma at his residence in Sharm el-Sheik. The unconfirmed reports claim Mubarak fell into a coma on Saturday and has been refusing all medical treatment.
