Former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak in 'full coma,' official says

Former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak was in a coma Monday, a spokesman for Egypt's Interior Ministry said.

"Mubarak entered today into full coma. His two sons Gamal and Alaa submitted a request to the prison authority to move beside him and it has been accepted. His health has been deteriorating since the verdict, with high blood pressure, problems breathing, and irregular heart beat," Interior Ministry spokesman Alaa Mahmoud said.

Mubarak's lawyer has submitted a request that he be moved from prison to a private hospital, Mahmoud said.

Mubarak, 84, is in a Cairo prison hospital after being sentenced to life in prison for the killing of pro-democracy demonstrators last year. Mubarak was already suffering from health problems and attended court on a gurney.

      What are you, a critic? I meant the circus surrounding Mubarek. If I had to give YOUR post a score, it would be about a one star. Keep your sarcastic remarks to yourself.

      Do not delete this, CNN, unless you delete the post critisizing me. I am every bit of a regular poster as @ is. Thank you.

    People of the World,
    I am shocked shocked to find out President Mubarak is in a convenient "Full Coma" to escape justice.
    I am sure he is resting in a hospital room on the balconey overlooking the sunny Mediterraean with a Martini IV

    Why are they giving him any kind of sympathy? He didn't have any for the poor people that died under his regime. Waste of skin!
