CAIRO (Reuters) - Al Jazeera television reported on Wednesday that an army helicopter had landed near a hospital in Egypt's Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh where Hosni Mubarak was admitted to take the former president to Cairo.

The brief report on the Arabic satellite channel, citing witnesses, did not give further details.

The report could not immediately be confirmed. A security source earlier said Mubarak was expected to stay where he was after he was ordered detained for an investigation.
