German doctor decides to delay president Mubarak operation
Doctors treating Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Monday delayed plans for an operation, Egyptian media reported.
The operation, to repair a slipped vertebral disc, was scheduled to take place in Munich, Germany.
But the official MENA news agency quoted a German doctor as saying they would wait for two or three days to see if other treatment could be helpful.
An announcement that Mubarak, 76, would undergo surgery follows official denials that he was in poor health.
According to MENA, the German doctor said: "I believe that we need to give a chance for two or three days before surgical intervention, because medical treatment could be useful in President Mubarak's condition." (Albawaba.com)
