CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's state news agency says a court has turned down deposed President Hosni Mubarak's request to be released from prison during an investigation into corruption charges.
The news agency MENA says the Cairo Criminal Court on Sunday ordered Mubarak to remain in jail for 15 days while the charges are probed.
Mubarak can appeal the court's decision.
The longtime autocrat was ousted during a 2011 public uprising. He has spent more than two years in detention without a final verdict in the case alleging that he is responsible for the deaths of nearly 900 protesters during the uprising.
He also has been ordered held in prison on other charges, including corruption.
