Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's office announced on Tuesday that the president's 12-year-old grandson has died in a Paris hospital but did not give the cause of death. Mohammed Mubarak died Monday after a "health crisis lasting two days," the presidency said. He was flown to Paris for emergency treatment, where he was joined by his grandmother, Egyptian first lady Suzanne Mubarak. His body was flown back to Egypt Tuesday for burial. Egyptian TV broadcast religious songs sung by children, a tradition when top government figures die.
