Hosni Mubarak is still in Egypt in the Red Sea resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh, Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq said on Sunday, amid rumours that the ousted strongman had fled the country.

"Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq announced that former president Hosni Mubarak is still in Sharm el-Sheikh," the state news agency reported, after Shafiq gave his first news conference since the former strongman left Cairo.
