Protesters press political demands in Egypt

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's health has sharply deteriorated in the days after he was sentenced to life in prison, and security officials ssaid specialists were evaluating whether to transfer him to a better-equipped hospital outside the penal system, the state news agency reported on Thursday.

"Official sources saw as likely the possibility of his transfer to a military hospital ... based on a medical recommendation from the doctors treating him," the state agency MENA reported.

The former leader, who reportedly has been treated in the past for cancer in gallbladder and pancreas, is currently suffering from acute depression, breathing difficulties due to hypertension and cardiac problems, said the agency.

Mubarak's condition had moved to a "dangerous" phase and he was placed on a respirator five times in the past 24 hours, medical source said.

On Saturday, Egypt's general prosecution had demanded the death penalty for Mubarak and his former Interior Minister Habib al-Adli, but they were sentenced to life in prison.

Also on Saturday, Amnesty International’s Middle East and North Africa Deputy Director Ann Harrison said: "We have from the start welcomed the trial of Mubarak and others for their role in the killing of protesters which began in January 2011. However, the trial and verdict have today left the families of those killed, as well as those injured in the protests, in the dark about the full truth of what happened to their loved ones, and it failed to deliver full justice."
