Egypt’s Mubarak breaks leg in hospital: Official

(AP) / 19 June 2014

The official says the 86-year-old Mubarak slipped in the bathroom and broke the upper part of his thigh bone on Thursday.

An Egyptian security official says ousted President Hosni Mubarak has broken his leg at a Cairo military hospital, where he is serving his three-year prison sentence in a corruption case.

The official says the 86-year-old Mubarak slipped in the bathroom and broke the upper part of his thigh bone on Thursday.

The official says Mubarak will need surgery for the break. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to media.

Mubarak, toppled in 2011, is facing a retrial for his role in the killings of hundreds of protesters during the uprising against his rule.

Last month he was convicted on charges of embezzling millions of dollars of funds allocated for the renovation of presidential palaces.
