An Ailing Mubarak Cancels Speech

November 21, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Ailing Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak canceled a speech on doctor's orders, a day after abruptly leaving a podium for more than 30 minutes in the middle of a nationally televised address to parliament.

The cancellation came after Egypt's main newspapers, which are tightly controlled by the government, devoted several pages to reassuring statements on the 75-year-old president's health.
