Mubarak Moved to Hospital

Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak has been transferred to a military hospital after doctors found fractures in his ribs. The 84-year-old, who is currently serving a life sentence in Cairo, suffered a head injury and a bruised chest when he slipped in a prison bathroom earlier this month. But doctors decided the condition required more attention and better medical equipment than that available at the prison. And Mubarak’s lawyer wants the ex-president to remain at the hospital. “I have warned many times that the prison conditions are not suitable,” he said.
