Moscow, Feb 14 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak is ill, the state media reported Monday.The 82-year-old former head of state is in a “severe psychological condition and is declining treatment despite his illness” but he is not in a coma, the pro-government Al-Gomhuria daily said, citing sources close to Mubarak.

The Egyptian daily Al-Masry Al-Youm Sunday reported that Mubarak was gravely ill and had slipped into a coma after mass protests forced him out of power last Friday.

He is now believed to be in the seaside resort of Sharm el-Sheikh. Last year, Mubarak travelled to Germany for gall bladder surgery.

He stepped down Friday and handed over power to the country’s military, after 18 days of widespread anti-government protests.

On Sunday, the military leadership dissolved parliament and suspended the constitution.
