In no more than three days time, ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak will face charges of inciting the deaths of protesters during the revolution that saw his fall from power, Israel Radio reported Monday, citing Egyptian legal sources.

According to the report, Mubarak will also face charges of taking other measures against protesters, including cutting communications, satellites and the internet in Egypt during the revolution against him.
Also on Monday, Egypt's health minister announced that Mubarak's wife, Suzanne, is in stable condition and said there is no reason for her to remain hospitalized, Israel Radio reported. She was hospitalized more than one week ago in Sharm e-Sheikh after experiencing heart pain. Her health troubles began after she was informed that investigators sought to questions her.
Last week, Egypt's ruling military council dismissed speculation it
would pardon former Mubarak, who is under investigation for graft and
abuse of power, and said it does not interfere in judicial affairs.
Some analysts say the military council, led by Field Marshal Mohamed
Hussein Tantawi who served as Mubarak's defense minister for two
decades, has been reluctant to humiliate their former leader by putting
him behind bars.
But the council has been under public pressure to hold Mubarak and
others to account, following a series of mass demonstrations after his
ouster on Feb. 11.
Mubarak is being probed for abuse of power, embezzlement and for his
role in the deaths of protesters during the 18 days of unrest that led
to his overthrow. His wife is accused of using her husband's influence
for unlawful personal gain.
Both deny the charges.
Due to sudden illnesses, neither spent time in prison for questioning
despite being ordered detained. Their two sons, Gamal and Alaa, were
moved to jail with other top officials and are being probed over
corruption and other charges.Reuters contributed to this report.
