Egypt`s Mubarak to be moved to prison for 1st time

Egyptian officials say Hosni Mubarak will shortly be moved to a prison hospital as soon as the facility is upgraded to house the former president.



Cairo: Egyptian officials say Hosni Mubarak will shortly be moved to a prison hospital as soon as the facility is upgraded to house the 83-year-old former president.

The officials said on Sunday the hospital in Tora prison in Cairo will be upgraded in "record time," but that there is no set date for the move.

Since his arrest last April, Mubarak has been held in custody first at a hospital in the Red Sea resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh and later at a military hospital outside Cairo.

The officials said nearly 50 stalwarts of Mubarak`s regime held at Tora would also be dispersed to five different jails in the Cairo area. They include Mubarak`s two sons.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.
