Mubarak 'likely' to be transported to military hospital under heavy security

CAIRO - The Egyptian state news agency on Thursday said that Deposed Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak would "likely" be transported to one of the state's vital installations or one of two military hospitals where he will be guarded under heavy security, citing a security source.
Mubarak will leave jail as early as Thursday after a court ruling that jolted a divided nation already in turmoil seven weeks after the army toppled Islamist President Mohamed Morsi.
He will then be put under house arrest, the prime minister's office said in a statement. The decision was authorized under Egypt's Emergency Law recently enacted under a security crackdown on Islamists, it added.
