Mubarak and Sons to be Detained

Via the BBC:  Egypt: Mubarak and sons detained amid corruption probe

"The prosecutor general orders the detention of former President Hosni Mubarak and his sons Gamal and Alaa for 15 days pending investigation after the prosecutor general presented them with the current state of its ongoing investigations," said a post on the prosecutor general’s Facebook page on Wednesday.
