CAIRO -- Medical officials say ousted President Hosni Mubarak's health condition has taken a turn for the worse.

The officials at the military hospital in Cairo where Mubarak is being treated said the downturn followed the announcement Sunday that Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi won Egypt's election for president.

The officials said Wednesday the 84-year old Mubarak slipped in and out of consciousness. They said he is suffering from depression.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters.

Mubarak was sentenced to life in prison for failing to stop the killing of nearly 900 protesters during the uprising that ousted him last year. He was moved last week from prison to the military hospital after reportedly suffering a stroke.
