Ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak is wheeled out of a courtroom following his verdict hearing in Cairo on June 2, 2012.
- More medical treatment ordered for former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak
- He is serving a life sentence in a Cairo prison
- He injured his head and chest in a fall this month
(CNN) -- Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who is serving a life sentence in a Cairo prison, is being transferred to a military hospital for medical treatment, state-run TV reported Thursday.
Egypt's state prosecutor ordered the transfer. An update of Mubarak's health was not given.
Mubarak suffered a head injury and a bruised chest when he slipped in a prison hospital bathroom this month. The 84-year-old is serving a life sentence in Cairo's Tora prison for his role in the killing of pro-reform demonstrators during Egypt's recent revolution.
Hosni Mubarak's legacy in Egypt
Mubarak has been suffering health problems. In 2011, he attended court on a gurney at his trial for corruption and the killing of the protesters. He was reported to be in a coma last June in the weeks after he was convicted. That health crisis began after a prison bathroom fall, his lawyer said at the time.
Mubarak's three-decade iron-fisted rule ended in February 2011.
