Egyptian President Hosny Mubarak's eldest grandson, Mohammed, has died at a Paris hospital after a brief illness.
Bloggers were quick to react to the 13-year-old's death – which was met by silence in the Egyptian official media when the story first broke.

Now it was announced he was dead and he died there after an operation or even may be in the operation room. May be he suffered from a tumor that no one noticed except when it was too late and was spread :(
It has not been announced on the Egyptian TV yet strangely,the TV is acting as if nothing has happened, may be they have not receive the orders yet .
I feel so sad for him.
May Allah bless his soul , he was just 13 years old and it is enough that he is in heaven now. My condolence to his family regardless of what I think about them.
Also Nawara wrote a blog post here about it:
اهو كل الناس عرفت اهو وقالت وهم مخبيين خبر الدنيا كلها عرفته
Finally, nowadays, it's not enough to follow the blogs only. Twitter has got its share of reactions too.
Mubarak's grandson, Mohammed 13years, dies of brain hommerage!
Everyone. If you're against Mubarak please don't take it out on a dead 13 year old boy. This makes you worse than a tyrant.
I'm sorry for that too :( Allah yer7amouh) [May God have mercy on him].
