Mubarak improving in German hospital: Egypt

Last Updated: Sunday, March 14, 2010 - 11:14

Berlin: Egypt`s Ministry of Information says Hosni Mubarak`s doctor at a German hospital is pleased with the president`s recovery from surgery last week to remove his gall bladder.
The ministry issued a statement on Saturday citing surgeon Markus Buechler of the Heidelberg University Hospital as saying Mubarak`s recovery was "progressing normally”.

The 81-year-old leader had his gall bladder removed at the clinic on March 06.

Mubarak`s term in office ends next year and concern about his health often prompts speculation about the leadership of the Arab world`s most populous nation, a US ally that plays a critical role in issues ranging from Middle East peace efforts to curbing Islamic militancy.
