Mubarak hurt after slipping in shower

2012-12-16 07:50

Cairo - Egypt's ousted dictator Hosni Mubarak, who is serving a life sentence, was injured when he slipped in a prison shower on Saturday, the official MENA news agency reported.

The former president, who was sentenced over the killings of protesters during the uprising that toppled him last year, was being treated for a head wound and bruising in the medical ward of the south Cairo prison, MENA reported.

Mubarak, 84, ruled Egypt for three decades before he was forced to resign on 11 February 2011 following 18 days of mass protests.

He was sentenced to life in June along with his interior minister Habib al-Adly for failing to prevent the deaths of around 850 protesters during the uprising.

      . No doubt!! Many Egyptians might not be happy with the space and diretions of their new democracy, but very few, would want to return , to the 'good old days' !!! After thirty years of doictatorship and tyranny, with most democratic structures destroyed, it will take a bit longer , to have the kind of government , the Egyptians demand !!!!

    It probably illegal for them to shower punishment death penalty?

    At 84 he should have a bed-bath given to him by a strong, not too gentle, warden.
