The two sons of ousted president Hosni Mubarak Alaa and Gamal arrived at 6 am this morning to the Tora jail (in south Cairo), venue of custody of all Mubarak's men, according to a medical source in the jail.
Speaking to Ahram Online on condition of anonymity, the source said that the two Mubarak brothers were wearing white training outfits. They were unshaven and Gamal was less poised than his elder brother.
"Gamal did not look like the Gamal we have seen on TV; he is in a state of total disbelief," the source said.
Already present in the jail is Ahmed Nazif, Mubarak's prime minister from July 2004 until the outbreak of the January 25 Revolution and a handful of his cabinet members, including Habib El-Adly the minister of interior during the revolution, who is facing charges of ordering the killing of demonstrators.
Also in the Tora jail is the once influential business tycoon Ahmed Ezz, a leading figure of the previously ruling National Democratic Party that was chaired by Mubarak himself, and a bunch of other Mubarak-era mega-businessmen.
Safwat El-Sherif, the former secretary-general of the ruling party and speaker of Shura Council (Upper House) who was known to be the strongest man in the Mubarak regime is also in the Tora jail along with Zakariya Azmi, Mubarak's chief of staff, who was dubbed "the iron man of the presidential palace."
All Mubarak's men are provided with adequate safety and health care, the medical source said, but some are in a worse shape than others. "Nazif is in a particularly bad condition; he keeps mumbling that he was forced to execute the president's orders and that he should not have been taken to jail," the source said.

Mubarak's health
" فَالْيَوْمَ نُنَجِّيكَ بِبَدَنِكَ لِتَكُونَ لِمَنْ خَلْفَكَ آَيَةً" "This day shall We save thee in thy body, that thou mayest be a Sign to those who come after thee! But verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Signs!" I just hope Mubarak is healthy enough and the above verse applies to him like it applied to his friend Pharaoh.'

It took enormous and sustained popular pressure to bring Mubarak to public trial. What are your feelings on where the trial might be heading?
It’s all theater; the officers are bowing and saluting the prisoners, the prosecution has deliberately bungled the case, and Mubarak will be acquitted.
It is a historic trial, the first time in modern Arab history that people bring their ruler to account for his crimes. Mubarak is bound to be convicted.
Mubarak has done great things for Egypt; it is a great shame that he and his sons should be humiliated in this fashion. This trial should be disbanded with due apologies to the Mubaraks.
There are many loopholes in the case; the security bodies are for the defendants, but Mubarak, his sons and cronies will be convicted for their crimes.
I don't know.
