Hosni Mubarak's health 'unstable'

Ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak's health is "unstable," the state news agency MENA reported on Thursday quoting a medical source in Sharm el-Sheikh where he is under hospital arrest.

Mubarak "is in suite 309 and his health is unstable," the source was quoted as saying by MENA.

Doctors are following up on Mubarak's health and "carrying out several medical tests to know the cause of the instability," the source added.

The report came as Egypt's public prosecutor was considering moving the 82-year-old former president to jail or to a prison hospital pending health checks, his office said.

Mubarak, who quit February 11, is being held in connection with violence against protesters during 18 days of anti-regime rallies that ended his 30-year grip on power. He is also being questioned on corruption charges.
