Former Egypt President’s Denial is Country’s Most Popular Ringtone

Hosni Mubarak

Today, the people of Egypt watched as the former President Hosni Mubarak lied in his hospital bed behind bars during the second day of his trial. The most memorable part of the whole thing? His denial of all charges. Will it become one of the most-remembered soundbites in history? Somewhat. His denial has become a popular ringtone, and Egyptians are sharing it over the internet as an MP3 file, reports say.

According to reports, this, along with many images of 83-year-old Mubarak lying sick in his hospital bed are all over the front pages of newspapers. According to Gulf News, this is only six months after so much as a mention of the former president’s health could mean jail time for an editor.

We are on the lookout for the ringtone and will update when we find it.
