Latest Arab rumor: Mubarak in Israel!

From Ma'an:
Ousted Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak is in a luxury hotel in the Israeli city of Eilat, the Israel-based news site Al-Arab reported Tuesday.

Locals said there was a huge presence of Israeli security forces surrounding the hotel, and airplanes were hovering above monitoring activity in the area, the Arabic-language report said.

A hotel employee revealed that Mubarak was a guest at the hotel, according to the news site.

The hotel declined to comment.
This comes after previous rumors that Mubarak fell into a coma immediately after his speech (and fainted twice while recording it,) that his sons argued bitterly during the speech, that he planned to flee to Dubai, and that he had gone to Germany.
