Egypt's former long-time President Hosni Mubarak died on Tuesday at the age of 91 in the Galaa Military Hospital in Cairo, his family and state television said.
His son Alaa Mubarak tweeted: "My father, President Mubarak, passed away this morning."
Mubarak's brother-in-law, General Mounir Thabet, told AFP that the family was in the hospital and that the bureau would organize the funeral.
Mubarak has long been battling an illness and has recently been admitted to an intensive care unit.
After the murder of former President Anwar al-Sadat, he took power in 1981 and remained head of state for three decades.
He was overthrown after three weeks of mass protests that started on January 25, 2011.
His fall occurred amid increasing anger among the population, partly triggered by rampant police brutality and 2010 parliamentary elections, which were widely classified as manipulated.
Mubarak has been charged several times after his fall, including the death of demonstrators in 2011 and corruption.
After years of trial and trial, he was acquitted of most of the charges.
Under Mubarak's 30-year reign, the Egyptians lived under emergency laws that gave the country's security agencies extensive powers.
The former president had survived several assassinations in 1995, including one by militant Islamists in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.
