Cairo, (Agencies): Longtime Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who was toppled in a popular uprising last week, wants to die in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh where he has been living since his ouster, a report said.

82-year-old Mubarak, who is suffering from health problems, turned down Saudi Arabia's offer to visit the kingdom, saying he was determined to see out his days in Egypt, Al Arabiya quoted a Saudi official as saying.

"He is not dead but is not doing well at all and refuses to leave. Basically, he has given up and wants to die in Sharm," said the Saudi official on condition of anonymity.

Official confirmation could not immediately be obtained from the Saudi government.

In his last speech on state TV, Mubarak said he would not flee from the his country and vowed to die in Egypt.

A number of Egyptian newspapers on Monday reported that Mubarak went into a full coma on Saturday night at his Sharm al-Sheikh residence.

Egyptian daily 'Al-Masry Al-Youm' reported that soon after moving to the resort, Mubarak who ruled Egypt for 30 years was gravely ill and slipped into a coma.

But an pro-government newspaper denied the report but said the leader was in severe psychological condition and was declining treatment.

The Egyptian President had been in Germany for gall bladder treatment month's before the protest against him started.
   
Britain's 'Daily Telegraph' quoting witnesses at the resort said, that the former President may be suffering from cancer.

Mubarak spent more and more time at his residence in Sharm el-Sheikh near the end of his time as leader, retreating to the clean air and sea breeze to recover from ailments.
