CAIRO - The wife of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak relinquished some of her assets to the state on Monday, days after anti-corruption authorities ordered her detention.

An anti-corruption agency ordered on Friday that the former first lady Suzanne Mubarak be detained for 15 days to investigate charges she abused her husband's influence for unlawful personal gain. The couple deny the charges.

Suzanne Mubarak returned a Cairo villa and gave authorities the power of attorney to withdraw up to 20 million Egyptian pounds ($3.4 million), which authorities said she held, from two bank accounts, MENA said.
