Hosni Mubarek Replaces Sadat

By Patrick Mondout

On October 14, 1981, one week after the assassination of Anwar Sadat, Hosni Mubarek was sworn in as Egypt's new prime minister and president.

Fears Unfounded

In the aftermath of the assassination world leaders worried about a change of leadership in this part of the turbulent Middle East. But Mubarek said he remained committed to completing the Camp David agreements and achieving peace with his neighbors. He appeased the Islamic extremists by releasing some of the fundamentalists imprisoned during September 1981. As of this writing (July 31, 2000), Mubarek remains the leader of Egypt.
