The defense lawyer of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak says the ousted leader may have cancer.

Farid el-Deeb said Monday there is “evidence suggesting” that the 83-year-old Mubarak has stomach cancer.

Mubarak, ousted on Feb. 11 by a popular uprising, has been hospitalized since April in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh. He is scheduled to face trial on Aug. 3 on allegations he ordered the killing of protesters during the uprising. If convicted, he could be sentenced to death.
