CAIRO, Egypt - CAIRO (AP) -- Egypt's state TV says that the country's prosecutor general has ordered ousted leader Hosni Mubarak to be transferred to a Cairo prison to serve his life sentence.
Saturday's announcement comes shortly after a Cairo court convicted Mubarak for his role in the killing of the protesters during last year's revolution that forced him from power.
Over the past months, Mubarak has been held in a presidential suite in a hospital on the outskirts of Cairo. Doctors treating him have said he is weak and has lost weight from refusing to eat. They have also said he suffers from severe depression.
He will be taken to Torah prison in southern Cairo, where his sons and members of his toppled regime have been held.
