egy_mubEgypt's military rulers have transferred former dictator Hosni Mubarak to the capital Cairo in a bid to probe his involvement in the killing of peaceful protesters.

Mubarak fled to his villa in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh following his ouster in February.

Ahmed Abu Baraka, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood Legal
 Committee, says he will remain in military custody until judicial proceedings begin through the order of a court, the Tehran-based Arabic news channel al-Alam reported.

This comes after Egypt's public prosecutor summoned Mubarak and his son for questioning.

The ousted ruler faces corruption charges and the use of violence against peaceful protesters.

Mubarak on Sunday denied the allegations of corruption in an interview with the Saudi-funded al-Arabiya television station. He called the accusations a libel campaign.

The developments come as tens of thousands of protesters demanded the prosecution of officials belonging to the former regime -- mainly Mubarak and his family.

Meanwhile, Egyptians continued their protests against the ruling military council in Cairo's Liberation Square on Monday.

The protesters are demanding an end to the military rule. They also want the head of the military council Field Marshal Mohammad Hossein Tantawi to step down, and Mubarak to be tried.
