BERLIN, (AP) – The German hospital where Hosni Mubarak had surgery this month says Egypt’s president is recovering well, but offered no details on when he would be released.

The 81-year-old Mubarak had his gall bladder removed at the clinic earlier this month but has not made any public statements or been seen.

Heidelberg University Hospital said Tuesday that “Mr. Mubarak is recovering well.”

State-owned papers in Egypt are reporting that Mubarak’s health is improving but rumors have swirled that the president was in serious condition.

Mubarak’s term in office ends next year. Concern about his health have prompted speculation about the leadership of the U.S. ally, which plays a critical role in issues ranging from Mideast peace efforts to curbing Islamic militancy.
