CAIRO - Egypt's anti-graft agency will interrogate former president Hosni Mubarak and his wife for the first time on Thursday evening, to examine charges they enriched themselves illegally, the state news agency said. An investigation team has moved to the Sinai resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh where Mubarak and his wife Suzanne are staying, the agency said, quoting Assem el-Gohari, a senior justice ministry official.

"Gohari said the team of investigators will begin the first session of its investigations with Mubarak and his wife this evening," the MENA report said.

"The two face accusations that they took advantage of the president's influence to accumulate massive wealth not commensurate with their legally established sources of income".
