CAIRO - The lawyer of deposed Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said on Monday that the health of his 84-year-old client was "very critical" and he should be urgently moved to a hospital from the ill-equipped prison facility he is being held in.

Farid el-Deeb told Reuters that Mubarak's health condition was worsening, with a frequent irregular heart beat.

Mubarak was sentenced to life in jail on June 2 for failing to prevent the killing of protesters who rose up against him. He had been charged with ordering police to open fire.

He was sent to Tora prison on the outskirts of Cairo.
