CAIRO: Deposed Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak broke his leg Thursday after falling while walking to the bathroom at a Cairo military hospital where he is being held, a military source at the hospital told Reuters.

Mubarak, 86, fractured the top of his left thigh bone, the source said, without providing further details.

The autocratic former president has been in detention at the upscale Maadi hospital since August.
