July 19, 2011

July 19 (Bloomberg) -- Egyptian interim Prime Minister Essam Sharaf underwent medical tests yesterday after suffering from low blood pressure due to fatigue, the state-run Al Ahram newspaper reported today, citing cabinet spokesman Mohamed Hegzy.

This is the second time that Sharaf suffers from a bout of low blood pressure since taking office after the revolt that toppled former President Hosni Mubarak this year, the Cairo- based newspaper said.
