CAIRO - Ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was hospitalized Tuesday in a Red Sea resort after suffering a heart attack during questioning by prosecutors for alleged corruption and abuse of power stemming from his nearly 30-year rule, state media reported. The official MENA agency said Mubarak went into intensive care at Sharm el-Sheikh International Hospital. Authorities said he was accompanied by his sons, Alaa and Gamal, both of whom were also being questioned. Early Wednesday, Maj. Gen. Mohammed el-Khatib, head of South Sinai security, said the sons would be detained for 15 days for investigation.

CAIRO - A day after the start of Hosni Mubarak's historic trial, seven of his codefendants were back in the courtroom Thursday on charges of complicity in the killing of protesters during the uprising that toppled Egypt's longtime president. The hearing of former Interior Minister Habib el-Adly and six top police officials was broadcast live on Egyptian state television. The seven first appeared in court Wednesday in the same defendants' cage with Mubarak and his two sons - onetime heir apparent Gamal and businessman Alaa - in a related case that is being tried by the same judge.

CAIRO - More than 10,000 Egyptians marched from mosques and protested in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Friday in a show of strength by Islamists, demanding the country's ruling generals bar Hosni Mubarak's former spy chief and other ousted regime officials from running in next month's presidential elections. The rally was the first major demonstration in Egypt in months and was a turnaround for the Islamists, who had abandoned street protests, particularly after they gained domination of parliament in elections late last year, and pursued a strategy of coexistence with the military even during violent army crackdowns on pro-democracy activists.

CAIRO - Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi will travel to Saudi Arabia on Wednesday on his first official trip abroad since being sworn in, a move suggesting the leader wants to reassure the kingdom that strong relations are a priority. Some Saudi officials are believed to have supported Morsi's former electoral rival, a former prime minister and ex-military general, in hopes of continuing the warm relationship once shared with Egypt's ousted leader Hosni Mubarak. Egypt's official news agency MENA said Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah invited Morsi "to strengthen relations.

CAIRO - Egyptian authorities have denied permission to eight U.S.-based nonprofit groups to operate locally, including a center headed by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter that monitors elections, a ministry official said Monday. The Social Affairs Ministry official said the licenses were denied because the groups' activities "breach the country's sovereignty. " He did not elaborate. He spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media. The move comes only a month ahead of presidential elections slated for May 23, the first since the ouster of longtime authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak 14 months ago. Sanne van den Bergh, who heads the Carter Center in Egypt, said the group has not yet received formal notification of the decision.

CAIRO - Hosni Mubarak's trial on charges that he ordered the killing of protesters during Egypt's uprising will be held at a police academy outside Cairo instead of in a convention center in the heart of the capital, the head of Cairo's appeals court said Saturday. The change appears to be linked to concerns over security during the ousted leader's trial, scheduled to begin Wednesday and sure to draw a large audience. The former president, 83, is to stand trial alongside his security chief and six other senior security officials facing similar charges stemming from the crackdown that killed hundreds but failed to stop the 18-day uprising that forced Mubarak from power on Feb. 11. Mubarak's two sons are also expected to appear in court on corruption charges.

CAIRO - Egypt's military ruler said Wednesday he hopes that a "great leader" will emerge from the country's presidential election, and said it will be a free and fair vote that will reflect the will of the people. The remarks by Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi appeared intended to assuage fears among many Egyptians that the ruling military council may be pushing a preferred candidate of its own, and reassure them that the pervasive rigging that was routine under ousted president Hosni Mubarak will not take place.

CAIRO - An Egyptian court Tuesday sentenced 43 nonprofit workers, including the son of the U.S. secretary of transportation and 15 other Americans, to prison in a case against foreign-funded pro-democracy groups. All of the Americans have left the country. The ruling and jail time of up to five years deepen worries over the operations of nongovernmental organizations in Egypt as parliament considers a bill proposed by President Mohammed Morsi that critics warn will profoundly restrict their activities.

CAIRO - Facing unrelenting pressure from Muslim Brotherhood protesters, Egypt's military chief sought to justify his decision to remove Mohmmed Morsi from office, saying Sunday in a televised speech that the Islamist leader had violated his popular mandate and antagonized state institutions. The comments by Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi - his first since the president's ouster nearly two weeks ago - came as the designated interim prime minister pushed ahead with talks to form a new cabinet this week.

CAIRO - Egypt's military moved swiftly Thursday against senior figures of the Muslim Brotherhood, targeting the backbone of support for ousted President Mohammed Morsi. In the most dramatic step, authorities arrested the group's revered leader from a seaside villa and flew him by helicopter to detention in the capital. With a top judge newly sworn in as interim president, the crackdown poses an immediate test to the new army-backed leadership's promises to guide Egypt to democracy: the question of how to include the 83-year-old fundamentalist group.

CAIRO - The judge in Hosni Mubarak's retrial recused himself at the start of the first session on Saturday, citing a conflict of interest as the former Egyptian president appeared in court for the first time in 10 months grinning and waving to supporters. The recusal threw the case deeper into disarray after an appeals court in January overturned a life sentence for Mubarak on a conviction for failing to prevent the killings of protesters during the 2011 uprising that ousted him. The appeals court granted Mubarak a retrial after ruling that in the first trial, the prosecution's case lacked concrete evidence and failed to prove that protesters were killed by the police during the bloodiest days of the revolt.

Egypt's Morsi visiting Sudan KHARTOUM, Sudan - Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi began a two-day visit to Sudan on Thursday aimed at boosting cooperation after deteriorating relations between the two nations under ousted leader Hosni Mubarak. It was Morsi's first trip to Egypt's southern neighbor since taking office nine months ago. Mubarak, who was toppled in a 2011 popular uprising, accused Sudan of harboring those suspected of trying to assassinate him in Ethiopia in 1995. Morsi and Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir share an Islamist background, and both countries see the rise of an Islamist to power in Cairo as an opportunity to improve ties.

CAIRO - Hosni Mubarak's new trial may resolve key questions unanswered in his first one: Who ordered the crackdown that left 900 protesters dead and who pulled the trigger? But the answers could complicate the new president's efforts to stabilize Egypt and deal with its economic woes since they might bring pressure to go after still-powerful figures in the security forces. Mubarak and former Interior Minister Habib el-Adly were sentenced to life in prison in June for failing to prevent the killings during the 18-day revolution in 2011 that toppled the leader's 29-year regime.

CAIRO - An Egyptian court Sunday ordered a retrial of ousted president Hosni Mubarak, granting an appeal of the former autocrat's life sentence for failing to prevent the killing of more than 900 protesters during the 2011 uprising that ended his rule. Sunday's court ruling also overturned convictions for Mubarak's former interior minister, Habib al-Adly, and six other security officials who stood trial alongside Mubarak last year. The latter six were acquitted, but all will now be retried.

CAIRO - An Egyptian fact-finding mission determined that Hosni Mubarak watched the uprising against him unfold through a live TV feed at his palace, despite his later denial that he knew the extent of the protests and crackdown against them, a member of the mission said Wednesday. The mission's findings increase pressure for a retrial of the 84-year-old ousted president, who is serving a life sentence for the deaths of 900 protesters. But its report could hold both political gains and dangers for his successor, Mohammed Morsi.

CAIRO - Egypt's chief prosecutor ordered an investigation on Thursday into allegations that opposition leaders committed treason by inciting supporters to overthrow Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. The probe by a Morsi-appointed prosecutor was launched a day after the president called for a dialogue with the opposition to heal rifts opened in the bitter fight over an Islamist-drafted constitution just approved in a referendum. The opposition decried the investigation as a throwback to Hosni Mubarak's regime, when the law was used to smear and silence opponents.

ALEXANDRIA, Egypt - Violence erupted between Egypt's divided camps on Friday, the eve of the final round of a referendum on a constitution that has polarized the nation, as Islamists and their opponents pelted each other with stones while police fired tear gas in the streets of the Mediterranean city of Alexandria. The draft constitution, which would bring a greater implementation of Islamic law to Egypt, is expected to be approved Saturday. The first round of voting took place Dec. 15 in 10 of Egypt's 27 provinces.
