Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak is unfit to be moved to prison from his Sharm el-Sheikh residence in the Sinai peninsula, AFP reported Egypt's prosecutor as saying on Tuesday.

According to the report, he suffers "an irregular heartbeat which could lead to a sudden heart attack."

Mubarak has been held in custody since April 13 when he suffered an alleged heart attack during an interrogation concerning his role in the killing of demonstrators against his rule and fraud.
