Former President, Mohamed Hosni Mubarak - Reuters
X-rays showed ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak is suffering from three broken ribs after a recent fall inside a Tora Prison Hospital bathroom, al-Arabiya website has stated.
Mubarak was transferred on Wednesday to Maadi Military Hospital under heavy security measures for x-rays and was sent back to prison on the same day.
“The medical report showed three broken ribs in addition to pleural effusion and osteoporosis,” al-Arabiya quoted Major General Mohamed Ibrahim, head of the prison sector, as saying.
Mubarak’s lawyer had filed a request to the prosecutor general asking for the formation of a committee to examine the former president and write a report on his condition to determine whether he should remain at the prison hospital or be transferred to another hospital.
