Egypt's Mubarak deteriorates further

Egypt's Mubarak deteriorates further

CAIRO (AP) -- Egyptian security officials say the health of ousted President Hosni Mubarak has deteriorated further, with doctors having to use a defibrillator twice and feed him liquids intravenously.

The officials said Mubarak's two sons, one-time heir apparent Gamal and wealthy businessman Alaa, were by his side at the intensive care ward of Torah prison hospital south of Cairo where the 84-year-old former president is serving a life sentence.

The officials, who are at Torah, did not say whether the defibrillator was used because Mubarak's heart stopped or to remedy irregular heartbeats. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
