Sources tell Al Jazeera that Hosni Mubarak, the former Egyptian president, has left the resort town of Sharm El-Sheikh on a flight headed to Germany, possibly for medical treatment.
Mubarak had been staying in Sharm El-Sheikh under house arrest since he stepped down from office on February 11.
However, Al Jazeera’s Zeina Khodr, reporting from Cairo, said that military sources deny the story and the Egyptians are holding the military to the promise of keeping Mubarak in the country to stand trial for alleged crimes under his presidency.
