    Egypt's Hosni Mubarak in hospital after 'heart attack'


    [​IMG]


    Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is in intensive care after suffering a heart attack, say state media.

    It happened as he was being questioned by prosecutors over allegations of corruption and the killing of hundreds of protesters, reports said.

    The manager of the hospital in Sharm el-Sheikh was earlier quoted saying the 82-year-old's condition was stable.

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

    Mr Mubarak's two sons, Alaa and Gamal, are also under investigation and are being questioned at the prosecutor's office in the provincial capital of el-Tor.

    Scuffles

    "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 earlier.

    The hospital was accepting no patients except for emergency cases, another local media report said.

    Protesters picketed the hospital, denouncing the president and carrying a sign reading "Here is the butcher", AP news agency reported. They scuffled with supporters of Mr Mubarak.

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

    Mr Mubarak underwent gall bladder surgery in the German city of Heidelberg last year and there were reports that he had remained in poor health, although his aides had denied this.

    A BBC correspondent says it is understood that the former president's doctors had asked Egypt's ruling military council for permission to send him back to Germany for treatment, but that this was refused.

    Mr Mubarak has been banned from leaving the country, along with his sons and their wives, and the family's assets have been frozen. He denies any wrongdoing.

    Square cleared Correspondents say he has been keeping a low profile in Sharm el-Sheikh, a Red Sea resort, after fleeing to his holiday villa there when he was overthrown.

    In a separate development, soldiers and police are said to have ended a five-day occupation of Cairo's Tahrir Square by hundreds of protesters.

    They had been demanding civilian rule and swifter prosecution of disgraced former officials, principally Mr Mubarak.

    There were clashes on the first night of the occupation and tensions had remained high.

    Aliyekuwa rais wa Misri Hosni Mubarak amelazwa hospitalini akiwa katika hali mahututi mjini Cairo. Awali MUbarak alilazwa katika hospitali moja eneo la kitalii la Sharm Sheikh.

    Vyombo vya habari nchini humo vinaripoti kuwa alipata mshtuko wa moyo alipokuwa akihojiwa na wachunguzi juu ya mauaji yaliyofanywa dhidi ya waandamanaji nchini Misri.

    Televisheni ya kitaifa ya Misri imenukuu baadhi ya madaktari wakisema kuwa Muabarak alikataa kula wala kunywa baada ya kuagizwa kufika mbele ya mwedesha mashtaka mkuu, pamoja na wanawe, yapata siku mbili sasa.

    kwa sasa anatibiwa magojwa ya moyo katika hospitali ya Sharm Al sheikh, ambapo madakitari wanasema kuwa anaendelea vyema.

    Usalama wa hali ya juu umewekwa katika hospitali. Bwana Mubarak aliye na umri wa miaka 82 aliripotiwa kuzorota afya yake baada ya upasuaji wa moyo aliyo fanyiwa nchini Ujerumani mwaka jana.

    Hata hivyo marafiki zake wa karibu zaidi wamesisitiza kuwa hali yake iko shwari.

    Mamia ya waandamanaji walisalia katika hospitali hiyo baada ya maandamano ya ijumaa, na wamesisitiza kuwa wataendelea kuketi hapo hadi pale kiongozi huyo atafunguliwa mashtaka.

    Wakati huo huo jeshi pamoja na polisi wameizingira bustani ya Taharir ambapo kumekuwa na waandamanaji wanaoshinikiza kuwepo na utawala wa kiraia pamoja na kushtakiwa kwa watawala waliong'olewa madarakani.

    Egypt: Mubarak sons detained amid corruption probe

    [​IMG]



    The sons of former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak have been detained amid investigations into corruption and state violence, police and media say.

    The two sons, Alaa and Gamal, who had earlier been taken for questioning, are to be held for 15 days. Gamal, the younger son, was once widely seen as a possible successor to his father as president.Hosni Mubarak has also been questioned, but he was taken to hospital after reportedly suffering heart problems.

    The former leader, 82, stood down on 11 February following an 18-day popular uprising against his rule.

    State television said on Tuesday that he had suffered a heart attack, though other reports indicated that he was well enough to undergo further questioning.

    Police van pelted

    Maj Gen Mohammed el-Khatib, head of provincial security in South Sinai, announced to a crowd gathered outside the courthouse where his sons were being questioned that they would be detained.

    "Brothers, whatever you wanted, you have got... 15 days," he was quoted as saying by the Associated Press news agency.

    As a police van drove the two brothers away, the crowd of about 2,000 pelted it with stones, bottles and flip-flops, AP reported.

    The sons' detention was also reported on state TV.

    Prosecutors are investigating the killing of hundreds of protesters and allegations of corruption under Mr Mubarak's 30-year rule.

    Mr Mubarak has been banned from leaving the country, along with his sons and their wives, and the family's assets have been frozen.He has been keeping a low profile in Sharm el-Sheikh, a Red Sea resort, after fleeing to his holiday villa there when he was overthrown.

    In a pre-recorded audio message on Sunday, he broke his silence of the last two months to say his reputation and that of his sons had been damaged and he would work to clear their names.

    On Tuesday, Egyptian soldiers and police moved into Tahrir Square in Cairo and ended a sit-in by protesters demanding civilian rule and swifter prosecution of former officials.

    A military council has been ruling Egypt since Mr Mubarak stepped down.

    Lol! Hili balaa sasa. Viongozi wa Afrika wenye uroho wa madaraka na wizi wa mali za nchi wanatakiwa kutambua kuwa mwisho wao ni mbaya. Huyu ni mwanzo, Gbagbo naye, Gadafi yu njiani na watoto wake na wengineo.

    Hosni Mubarak detained over corruption allegations

    Egypt's former president, Hosni Mubarak, has been detained as authorities in the country investigate allegations of corruption and abuse of his authority.

    His detention comes after the 82-year-old reportedly suffered a heart attack while being questioned on Tuesday night.Mubarak's two sons, Gamal and Alaa, have also been detained after being questioned over corruption claims into the early hours of Wednesday morning.

    A statement from the prosecutor general's office announcing Mubarak's detention said the ongoing investigation was into allegations of corruption, the squandering of public funds, and the abuse of authority for personal gain.

    "The prosecutor general orders the detention of former president Hosni Mubarak and his sons Gamal and Alaa for 15 days pending investigation after the prosecutor general presented them with the current state of its ongoing investigations," it said.
    Egypt's interim government issued subpoenas to Mubarak and his sons over the weekend, compelling them to testify in court over claims that they illicitly acquired wealth and abused their power during the former president's reign.

    The announcement of their detention came just hours after Mubarak was hospitalised with heart problems in Sharm el-Sheikh.He has been in internal exile in the Red Sea resort since Egypt's mass uprising earlier this year.Mubarak was taken to hospital in Sharm el-Sheikh. However in a sign his health may not be in immediate danger, justice minister Mohammed el-Guindi said questioning of the former president continued in hospital.

    While the ex-president was in hospital – where he is expected to remain for the period of his detention – his sons were taken for questioning to a Sharm el-Sheikh court by prosecutors from Cairo.Gamal Mubarak, his younger son, was a top official in the ruling party and was widely seen as being groomed to succeed his father before 18 days of popular protests brought down the regime on 11 February.

    An angry crowd of 2,000 people gathered outside and demanded the two be arrested.Then, in the early hours of the morning, the head of provincial security in the South Sinai told the crowd that Gamal and his businessman brother Alaa would be detained."Brothers, whatever you wanted, you have got … 15 days," said Major General Mohammed el-Khatib, as the crowd erupted in cheers.

    As a police van with drawn curtains took away the two brothers, the crowd pelted it with water bottles, stones and their flip-flops, a sign of disrespect in the Arab world.About 800 people are estimated to have been killed during the protests as police opened fire and cracked down on the crowds. Authorities are now investigating government officials for their role in ordering the violence.

    Gamal is also believed to be the architect of Egypt's privatization program and economic liberalization, which has brought in billions in foreign investment but has also widened the gap between rich and poor.Many of his close associates were billionaires and held top positions in the ruling party and the government. There are allegations that they used their positions for personal gain.

    This wave of holding the former African leaders and their close relatives to account will serve as a stern lesson to current and future greedy big shots who are treading on their citizens' rights and amassing wealth with impunity at their citizens' expense
