Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak taken to hospital

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been taken to hospital in Sharm el-Sheikh, security sources say.

“Mubarak was admitted to the Sharm el-Sheikh International Hospital this afternoon, amid a very heavy security presence in the town,” a security source told AFP news agency.

Media reports say the health minister is to give a statement on the matter.

Mr Mubarak, 82, stood down on 11 February following an 18-day popular uprising against his rule.

He had been reported to be in bad health but aides had denied this.

“There is a state of confusion inside the hospital and only patients are allowed in,” Ashraf Swaylam, a news reporter for the state-run station Nile TV, said on air.
