Saudi official: Mubarak has given up, waiting to die

An official in Saudi Arabia said the kingdom had offered to host Mubarak but he was determined to see out his days in Egypt. Official confirmation could not immediately be obtained from the Saudi government.

“He is not dead but is not doing well at all and refuses to leave. Basically, he has given up and wants to die in Sharm,” said the Saudi official, who asked not to be named.
