CAIRO, April 15 (Xinhua) -- Egyptian General Prosecutor Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud decided on Friday to move former President Hosni Mubarak to a military hospital, where he will remain in custody pending investigations, state MENA news agency reported.

Mubarak was taken to a hospital in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh Tuesday after he suffered a heart attack during questioning by prosecutors for investigation.

Mahmoud also decided to assign guards to keep an eye on Mubarak, the report said without mentioning the location of the military hospital, from where he will be transferred to jail as soon as his health condition improves, according to the governing prison laws, MENA reported.

The decision was made after Interior Minister Mansour al- Eissawi informed Mahmoud in a message that medical equipment at prison hospitals are not efficient to deal with the critical health complications and advised that Mubarak be admitted to a military hospital under tight security.

Mahmoud on Wednesday ordered a 15-day detention for Mubarak and his two sons, Alaa and Gamal. They are accused of corruption and use of violence against protestors during the anti-government demonstrations.

Based on the general prosecutor's previous arrangement, Mubarak would be transferred from Sharm el-Sheikh International Hospital to the Tora Prison hospital in Cairo.

Mubarak was forced to end his long-time rule on Feb. 11 after the 18-day demonstration, which left some 384 people dead.
