Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood's Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie has suffered a heart attack in Tora prison, where he is currently being held pending trial, a security source told Ahram Arabic news website.

The Interior Ministry – in a statement Saturday – denied rumours Badie has died.

According to the security source, Badie's condition is thus far stable and a team of doctors were sent to the prison to examine him.

Badie, along with most of the group's top figures, have been arrested following the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi – a leading figure in the group -  by the military on 3 July following mass protests against his rule.

Badie and his deputies have been charged by prosecutors with 'inciting murder' of anti-Morsi protesters. The first session in the trial was held on 25 August.

Security forces have also carried out mass arrests against hundreds of the group's middle-ranking leaders and members.

Why?
Why didn't they take him to an outside hospital like they did with Mubarak numerous times? They airlift Mubarak and Badie can just stay in prison. Mubarak had afib while Badie had a heart attack (which requires more emergent care) yet Mubarak gets special treatment. This is very shady...I'm betting it wasn't even a heart attack they've just tortured him to within an inch of his life.
