CAIRO - Egypt's appeals court rescinded a ruling to remove the names of ousted President Hosni Mubarak and his wife Suzanne from schools and streets, state news agency MENA reported on Thursday.

Officials seeking to win presidential favor named public buildings, military installations and rural clinics after Mubarak in the years before a popular uprising toppled him in February.

"The court of appeals ... canceled an earlier ruling issued by the court of first degree that decided to remove the name of former President Hosni Mubarak and that of his wife Suzanne Thabet from all institutions," MENA said.

The agency said the court decided to refer the case to State Council for review.
