Egypt's ousted leader Hosni Mubarak released

CAIRO (AP) _ Egypt's ousted leader Hosni Mubarak has been released from prison and private TV stations have shown footage of his arrival at a military hospital in a Cairo suburb where he will be held under house arrest.

Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi has ordered that Mubarak be put under house arrest as part of the emergency measures imposed this month after a wave of violence sparked by Islamist leader Mohammed Morsi's ouster. Thursday's move followed a court decision ordering his release in relation to charges of receiving gifts from a state-owned newspaper.

The house arrest decision appeared designed to ease some of the criticism over Mubarak being freed from prison and ensure that he appears in court next week for a separate trial.
