Years After Arab Spring, Egypt’s Mubarak Remains in Limbo
New York Times – In many ways, life is not so bad for Egypt’s deposed ruler, Hosni Mubarak. At the Cairo hospital he calls home, he enjoys regular deliveries of flowers, newspapers and takeout restaurant meals; visits from his wife, two sons and grandchildren; and a sweeping view over the Nile.
To mark his 88th birthday recently, a throng of well-wishers gathered at the hospital gates and sang, danced and waved his portrait. Mr. Mubarak pulled open a window and waved back.
