Egypt: Mubarak taken to military hospital

An Egyptian security official says ousted president Hosni Mubarak has been transferred to a Cairo military hospital, after slipping and injuring his head and chest in prison.


For months, there have been conflicting reports about the health of the 84-year old Mubarak, who was sentenced in June to life in prison for failing to stop the killing of hundreds of protesters during last year's uprising. He is the first Arab president to serve a prison sentence. (AP)
