CAIRO - Egypt's public prosecutor said on Sunday that a doctor declared ousted President Hosni Mubarak well enough to be transferred to a prison hospital in Cairo pending questioning over corruption and murder allegations.
"The public prosecutor has ordered the Interior Ministry to transfer former President Hosni Mubarak to Mazra'a hospital in Torah prison (in Cairo)" once the hospital is ready to receive him, the prosecutor said in a statement.
Mubarak took refuge in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh after a popular uprising ended his 30-year rule.
He was admitted to a hospital there with an unspecified illness the day that prosecutors ordered him detained for questioning.
