A government prosecutor plans to question the editor of a prominent independent newspaper about his paper's recent reports on the health of the country's 79-year-old leader, President Hosni Mubarak, a judiciary official said Tuesday. The move comes amid concerted state media efforts in recent days to dispel speculation that the president's health is poor. Earlier this week, first lady Suzanne Mubarak said in a rare television appearance that her husband is healthy, and said she believes journalists who published reports contending he was ailing deserve to be punished. "The president's health is excellent, and his activities are continuing and are not on hold," Suzanne Mubarak told the satellite channel Al-Arabiya on Sunday.
