Newspaper claims first Mubarak interview since detention

CAIRO — In his first comments to the media since he was detained more than two years ago, Egypt’s ousted leader, Hosni Mubarak, said he is dismayed at the country’s state of affairs and particularly the plight of the poor.

The 85-year old Mubarak said in remarks published Sunday in Al-Watan newspaper that it is also too early to judge his elected successor, President Mohammed Morsi, because he has a heavy burden to deal with.
