Grieving leader cancels U.S. trip

May 21, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, grieving over the death of his 12-year old grandson, canceled his trip to meet President Obama in Washington next week, the White House and Egyptian officials said.

Mubarak was not seen at the funeral of Mohammed Alaa Hosni Mubarak in Cairo on Tuesday. The boy, the elder of two children of Mubarak's son Alaa, died Monday, two days after the onset of what the presidency called a "health crisis."
