CAIRO - Egypt's former first lady Suzanne Mubarak will have her heart tested using a catheter in a hospital in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh where she is being detained, the state news agency MENA reported on Sunday.

"Suzanne Mubarak is still in the hospital's ICU and there is a decision to keep her for 48 hours to undergo a heart catheter," the agency said, citing Mohamed Fathallah, the manager at the hospital where former President Hosni Mubarak is also undergoing treatment while under detention.

An anti-corruption agency ordered Mubarak detained for 15 days on Friday for investigation into charges she used her husband's influence to amass wealth unlawfully. She was admitted to hospital after suffering symptoms of a heart attack.
