Egypt: Mubarak slipping in and out of coma

84-year-old Mubarak, who has been undergoing treatment at the Tora prison hospital here, is experiencing breathlessness due to his heart problems.



Cairo: Egypt`s jailed president Hosni Mubarak`s health deteriorated further as he was slipping in and out of coma in a prison hospital and was at risk of suffering a stroke any time, an official said on Sunday.

84-year-old Mubarak, who has been undergoing treatment at the Tora prison hospital here, is experiencing breathlessness due to his heart problems, more than a week after he was sentenced to life in prison.

The official said Mubarak`s wife, Suzanne, and their two daughters-in-law visited him in prison this morning after rumors circulated that the former Egyptian strongman had died.
They were granted special permission to visit him to quash rumours of his death, the official said.

The hospital administration had reportedly brought in recently a team of cardiologists who had examined Mubarak and found that he was suffering from a nervous breakdown, depression, high blood pressure and breathing problem.

Mubarak`s elder son Gamal had been earlier moved to a ward next to the hospital to allow him to monitor his father in the intensive care unit.
