Mubarak fighting death, sources tell state TV

Former President Hosni Mubarak is fighting death in the Maadi military hospital, sources close to Mubarak’s family told state-owned Egy News TV on Sunday.

On order from the public prosecutor, Mubarak was transferred to the military hospital on Thursday after falling and injuring himself in his Tora Prison bathroom.
According to the independent Al-Dostour newspaper, Prosecutor Talaat Abdullah approved a request by Mubarak’s lawyer Fareed al-Deeb to visit him in the hospital.
Abdullah is considering another request from Mubarak’s lawyers that would allow a medical team to remain with Mubarak in the hospital.
The 84-year-old former president’s health has deteriorated sharply several times since he was sentenced to life in prison in June for the killing of protesters during the 2011 revolution.
