Lawyer: Egypt's Mubarak sent to hospital for fractured ribs

[Updated at 10:01 a.m. ET] Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak was ordered to a military hospital after a report conducted by doctors stated that he had fractures in three of his ribs after he slipped in a prison hospital
bathroom this month, his lawyer Farid El Deeb told CNN.

[Posted at 8:19 a.m. ET] Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who is serving a life sentence in a Cairo prison, is being transferred to a military hospital for medical treatment, state-run TV reported Thursday.

Egypt's state prosecutor ordered the transfer. An update of Mubarak's health was not given.

Mubarak suffered a head injury and a bruised chest when he slipped in a prison hospital bathroom this month. The 84-year-old is serving a life sentence in Cairo's Tora prison for his role in the killing of pro-reform demonstrators during Egypt's recent revolution.

    Shouldn't there be quotations around the word "falls" in the headline?
    Supervisor: What happened to Mubaraks ribs?" Guard: He "fell". Supervisor: That happens. Both: LOLZ

      Probably was attacked. But that's not funny. Guards should not take justice into their own hands.

      Reminds me of the case down south where the "perp" was handcuffed, hands in back, and used a gun to shoot himself. What was the outcome on that one?

    He fell on a knife nine times, shot himself in the back of the head, then stuffed himself in the trunk... Honest! It was the craziest thing I've ever seen!

      Why is he allowed to wear fashion accessories in jail? Nice goggles, a watch and high quality robe. Is this common to all inmates? Boy that's a good life.
