(Newser) – Hosni Mubarak is healthy enough to leave the military hospital where he's been staying and return to prison, Egypt's public prosecutor says. Mubarak had moved to the hospital last month amid mixed health reports: While some said he was "clinically dead," his lawyer said he'd simply taken a fall and had stabilized, reports Reuters. Now a medical committee has agreed he's ready to return to prison, says a rep for the prosecutor's office. In other Egypt news, Hillary Clinton has received an unfriendly welcome to the country.
