Reports Mubarak landed in Sharjah untrue: officials

Media reports that the ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak landed at the Sharjah International Airport yesterday are untrue, say officials.

Media reports that the ousted Egyptian president, Hosni Mubarak, landed at the Sharjah International Airport yesterday were denied by an official source at Sharjah’s Department of Civil Aviation, according to WAM, the state news agency.

Media speculation continues as to where the former president will finally settle, following news that just hours after stepping down as president on Friday night, he travelled to Egypt’s Red Sea resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh.

He resigned as president after Egyptians protested in the streets of Cairo for 18 days.
