Ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi spent his first night in prison in a hospital room with a separate bathroom and television after he complained he was ill, security officials said.

Mr. Morsi, 62, has been held in a secret military facility since he was ousted in July, but he was transferred to a maximum security prison near Alexandria on Monday after his first trial session was delayed to Jan. 8, The Associated Press reported.

The Muslim Brotherhood leader had complained that day of high blood pressure and high blood sugar, so he was placed in a prison hospital room. The Interior Ministry said he was receiving regular checkups, AP reported.
