CAIRO - The wealth of toppled Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak is no more than $1 million and he has no assets overseas, his lawyer said on Sunday.

Farid el-Deeb also told CNN in an interview that Mubarak denied charges of graft and killing protesters during the uprising that ousted him in February.

"He was very sad and sorry because he did not imagine such accusations," Deeb said.

"His entire fortune amounts to around 6 million Egyptian pounds which he saved from working for 62 years. He does not own anything else in Egypt or outside of Egypt.

"He does not own a single dollar abroad."
