CAIRO (Ma’an) — Ousted Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak is suffering serious health problems and fainted before his last speech, informed sources in Egypt told Ma’an on Sunday.

Sources said Mubarak’s condition was the reason his much anticipated speech on Thursday was delayed. Egyptian army leaders avoided exerting more pressure on the former president in the final days of his rule due to his poor health, sources added.

Mubarak on Friday stepped down and handed power to the Egyptian army after 18 days of mass demonstrations against his regime.

The Bahrain-based newspaper Al-Wasat reported Saturday that Mubarak had fallen into a coma, quoting sources close to the deposed leader.

The Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm said Sunday that Mubarak was in Baden, Germany for medical treatment.

He had earlier traveled to his residence in the Red Sea resort town of Sharm El-Sheikh with his family on board one of his private jets, the newspaper reported.

The report said Mubarak has previously undergone surgery in Germany to remove an inflamed gallbladder in March 2010. In 2004, he had back surgery in the country.
