Mubarak Health Shows Slight Improvement After Earlier Crisis

Ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s health has improved “slightly,” though he is refusing to eat any prison food, the prison department spokesman said today, citing the medical team overseeing Mubarak’s case.

Brigadier General Mohamed Elewa said Mubarak, who is serving a life sentence for failing to prevent the killing of protesters in the uprising that removed him from power, drank some juice and ate yogurt and is only willing to communicate with his two sons.

Mubarak, 84, is being held in the intensive care unit of Cairo’s Tora prison. Doctors have said his health has deteriorated since his transfer to the facility after his June 2 conviction.

The doctors overseeing his treatment said Mubarak’s mental condition is “poor” and he trusts no one other than his sons, businessman Alaa and onetime heir-apparent Gamal. Both are being held nearby in the prison pending the start of a new criminal trial on charges of illicit gains related to the sale of a bank.
