CAIRO (Reuters) - Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and his family are not allowed to leave the country, the military council to which he handed power on February 11 said on Monday.

The military denied reports that Mubarak had left to Saudi Arabia, adding: "He and his family are subject to forced residency in Egypt."
