Mubarak's health worsens: official

2012-06-27 22:00

Cairo - Medical officials say ousted President Hosni Mubarak's health condition has taken a turn for the worse.

The officials at the military hospital in Cairo where Mubarak is being treated said the downturn followed the announcement on Sunday that Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi won Egypt's election for president.

The officials said on Wednesday that the 84-year old Mubarak had slipped in and out of consciousness.

They said he was suffering from depression.

Mubarak was sentenced to life in prison for failing to stop the killing of nearly 900 protesters during the uprising that ousted him last year.

He was moved from prison to the military hospital last week after reportedly suffering a stroke.
