Mubarak have episodes in which momentarily lost knowledge

"The health of former President Hosni Mubarak is stable, but has an irregular heartbeat and therefore loss of consciousness from time to time. He has difficulty concentrating," announced the official Egyptian news agency 'Mena', citing a medical source. These allegations come after a week that last Sunday, the former president's lawyer, Farid el-Deeb, declared that Mubarak was in a coma.

"I have been informed of the severe deterioration of the health of Mubarak and I am en route to Sharm el-Sheikh, where he is hospitalized. All I know is in a coma, I have no details," he said then. However, these statements were denied by members of the hospital. Mubarak has been hospitalized since April.

Mubarak left the office on February 11 under pressure from people who demanded democracy. The former Egyptian leader is indicted on August 3 as it is accused of killing about 850 protesters and corruption. Incoming data on the health status of the former president is scarce and often confusing.

In June, the lawyer said that Mubarak was suffering from stomach cancer.
