Mubarak's wife hospitalized after detention order

Mubarak's wife hospitalized after detention order. 44341.jpegEgyptian corruption investigators detained Suzanne Mubarak, the wife of the ousted president, Hosni Mubarak, for questioning over allegations that she profited illegally from her position, government officials said on Friday. Hours later, state news agencies said Mrs. Mubarak had been hospitalized for a heart attack, an echo of reports several weeks ago that Mr. Mubarak, 82, had suffered a heart attack under questioning about official corruption.

Before the announcement of her hospitalization, officials had said Mrs. Mubarak, 70, would be held in a Cairo prison, according to New York Times.

The former president, 82, has been detained in a hospital in Sharm el-Sheikh since April 13, when prosecutors ordered his arrest. Officials have said they expect to move him to Cairo for interrogation when he is healthy enough to travel.

Hosni Mubarak has denied the allegations of corruption. He also faces charges stemming from the killing of demonstrators during the early days of the uprising.

Mubarak's sons Gamal, long deemed the heir to the presidency, and Alaa were detained the same day he was. They are being held in a Cairo prison, Washington Post says.
