Cairo - Egypt's ambassador to the United States says Hosni Mubarak may be in "bad health," the first word on the 82-year-old ousted president's health.

Speaking on Monday on NBC's "Today" programme, Sameh Shoukry said he had received information that Mubarak was "possibly in somewhat of bad health". He said he could not be more specific.

Two Cairo newspapers on Monday said Mubarak, forced to step down on Friday after an 18-day democracy uprising, was refusing to take medication, depressed and repeatedly passing out at his residence in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh. There was no immediate confirmation of the reports.

Mubarak had surgery in Germany last year to remove his gallbladder.
