Mubarak's condition showing 'slight' improvement

LAST UPDATED: 2:06 a.m. HST, Jun 13, 2012

CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian security officials say Hosni Mubarak's condition has shown a "slight" improvement but that the ousted leader is refusing prison food.

The officials at Torah prison where Mubarak is serving his life sentence say the 84-year-old former president ate yogurt and drank juice on Wednesday and was being given liquids and vitamins intravenously.

The officials say Mubarak's sons are by his side. The officials spoke on anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the media.

Mubarak was sentenced to life in prison on June 2 for failing to prevent the killing of protesters during the uprising that toppled his regime.

His lawyer, Farid El-Deeb, has said that Mubarak did not trust his doctors and feared they were out to kill him.
