Deposed Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak's condition deteriorated late Friday night, following the Egyptian state prosecutor's decision to extend his detention by another 15 days, the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat reported.

According to the report, a medical source from Sharm el-Sheikh said Mubarak's condition continues to be unstable and visits to his room have been prohibited.

Mubarak's medical team has determined that the former president is not in fit to be transferred to the Tora prison hospital in Cairo.
