DTN News - EGYPT NEWS: Egypt Detains Mubarak, Sons For Questioning

Defense News: DTN News - EGYPT NEWS: Egypt Detains Mubarak, Sons For Questioning
(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - April 13, 2011:

Egyptian authorities have detained former president Hosni Mubarak for 15 days as part of a corruption investigation.

Prosecutors made the announcement Wednesday shortly after Mubarak was hospitalized with heart problems while being questioned by authorities in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

Egyptian media reported that his sons Alaa and Gamal were also being questioned and detained for 15 days.

The Mubaraks, along with several top officials are accused of embezzling public funds and abuse of power for using force against protesters during anti-government demonstrations earlier this year. The ousted president has said the allegations against him are unfounded, and that he has the right to defend his reputation and that of his family.

His remarks were broadcast Sunday by the Al-Arabiya news channel. They were his first public comments since mass protests forced his departure in February. Egyptian military police forcibly removed protesters from Cairo's Tahrir Square Tuesday, ending a four-day sit-in. Security forces detained many demonstrators as they fled the area.

Protesters have stepped up pressure on Egypt's ruling military to try Mubarak and members of his government for corruption and other crimes.

Some information for this report was provided by AP, AFP and Reuters.
