06 February 2012, 10:20
Cairo - Egypt's interior minister has ordered Cairo's Tora prison
hospital to make preparations to receive former President Hosni Mubarak,
who has till now been held in a military hospital while he has been
standing trial, Al Jazeera television said on Sunday.
Al Jazeera did not cite a source for the report that was carried in brief headline.
The move, if confirmed, would be a concession to protesters who have
complained that Mubarak, who ruled Egypt for 30 years, has been given
special treatment by the military council, which took over when he was
pushed out in February last year.
The army had no immediate comment on the report and officials at the Interior Ministry could not immediately be reached.
