Mubarak's Condition Deteriorating


Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak was transferred to a military hospital, Thursday evening, after a serious worsening of his medical condition. Mubarak's condition started to deteriorate earlier in the week, after he slipped in the bathtub in the prison where he is serving a life sentence for bribery and for the killing of demonstrators during the demonstrations that led to his ouster, almost two years ago.

Egyptian media report that Mubarak asked his doctors to disconnect him from life support, but they refused and informed prison authorities of his situation. Mubarak has been hospitalized a number of times since entering prison and doctors are not encouraged.
