Ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak has been ordered to be moved to a military hospital in the country's capital Cairo.

The 82-year old Mubarak, who ruled Egypt for nearly 30 years, had been in a civilian hospital in Northern Egypt for two weeks. Doctors determined late Sunday that Mubarak's health was good enough for travel, reported BBC.

The ailing former Egyptian leader is being investigated for corruption and abuse of power. Mubarak is also being investigated for his dealing with the demonstrations that saw his rule come to an end, in which hundreds of protesters were killed.

Egypt is currently under control of the military council interim government until democratic elections are held. Mubarak’s two sons are also under investigation and being held in prison.
