CAIRO - Egypt's ousted President Hosni Mubarak, jailed for life this month and who has been hospitalized for more than a year, is unconscious and on a respirator but is not clinically dead, two security sources told Reuters on Tuesday.

"He is completely unconscious. He is using artificial respiration," one military source told Reuters, after the state news agency reported he was clinically dead after being taken from a prison medical facility to a military hospital.

Another separate security source gave the same account and dismissed the report issued by the state news agency saying: "It is still early to say that he is clinically dead."
