Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Saturday was injured when he slipped in a prison shower, Al Arabiya, citing Egypt's official MENA news agency, reported.

According to the report, Mubarak, who is serving a life sentence for his role in the killing of protesters during the uprising that toppled him last year, was treated for a head wound and bruising by medics in Tora prison near Cairo.

Mubarak, 84, ruled Egypt for three decades before a popular revolt removed him from office on Feb. 11, 2011.
