Report: Egypt's ex-PM Ahmed Shafik faces arrest, extradition order

Prosecutors in Egypt have ordered the arrest and extradition of ex-prime minister and presidential runner-up Ahmed Shafik, along with other Mubarak-era officials, according to Egypt's state-run MENA news agency.

The move is tied to an investigation into alleged corrupt real estate dealings involving the illegal sale of state property to the sons of former President Hosni Mubarak.

Shafik, a former air force chief and the last prime minister to serve under Mubarak, left Egypt for the United Arab Emirates in June.
