Egypt army denies report that Mubarak left country

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's military council denied on Sunday a report carried by Al Jazeera television channel that former President Hosni Mubarak had left the country for Germany.

Asked whether Mubarak had left Egypt, a source from the military council told Reuters: "No, this is denied."

Mubarak has been staying in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh since being ousted from office on February 11.

The military council said last week that Mubarak and his family were banned from leaving the country.
