Former Egyptian Pres Mubarak detained, suffers heart attack

Wednesday April 13, 2011 08:46:03 PM, IANS

Cairo: Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, who was Wednesday sent to 15 day's detention along with his two sons on charges of using violence against protesters, abuse of power and embezzlement of public funds, has suffered a second heart attack, a media report said.

The former president's health has deteriorated further, AKI reported citing the Youm7 website.

Egypt's Prosecutor General Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud Wednesday ordered the detention of Mubarak and his sons, Alaa and Gamal, the official MENA news agency said.

Mubarak now might be admitted to a military hospital in Cairo, Youm7 said. He had suffered a heart attack during questioning by prosecutors.

He and his sons face charges of use of violence against protesters, power abuse and embezzlement of public funds, MENA said.

Mubarak's sons arrived at the Tora prison in southern Cairo Wednesday morning, according to Xinhua.

They "turned in their civil outfits, mobile phones, wallets and all other belongings to be put inside the prison's safe" after they got out of the police vehicles, it said.

Looking "bewildered and distressed", they declined to eat breakfast and only asked for bottles of water from the prison's cafeteria.

Mubarak, 82, was hospitalised Tuesday in Sharm el-Sheikh tourist resort after suffering a heart attack during questioning by prosecutors.

He had refused to eat or drink after learning Tuesday morning that he was to be questioned by the investigators, sources said.

He will be moved to a military hospital in Cairo, where he will undergo further investigation, the state-run al-Ahram newspaper reported.

Mubarak has suffered from health problems in recent years and went to Germany for gall bladder surgery in March 2010.

Egypt's justice ministry said the questioning of Mubarak will resume in the hospital after his health stabilises.

Mubarak was forced to quit power after a 30-year rule following 18 days of nationwide demonstrations which left some 384 people dead. He resigned Feb 11 and left for the Red Sea resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh, from where he hails.

Mubarak has denied all accusations in an audio tape aired by Al-Arabiya TV.
