Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian strongman ousted last year after 30 years in power, was moved to an army hospital from a prison hospital on Thursday (December 27) following a fall that raised fresh concerns about his fragile health.
Mubarak, 84, was forced out in a 2011 uprising and sentenced to life in prison in June of this year for his role in killing protesters during the revolt.
He was admitted to a prison hospital that month following what security officials called a "health crisis".
His lawyer said he was transferred to the military hospital after fracturing a rib when he fell in the prison hospital.
The lawyer said he also suffered from lung complications and dizziness.
Mubarak's legal team had been pressing to have him moved from the prison hospital to a better-equipped facility, saying he was not receiving adequate treatment.
