CAIRO - Doctors failed to complete a heart test on the wife of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, a state newspaper said on Monday, potentially prolonging a stay in hospital after anti-corruption authorities ordered her detention.

Al-Ahram newspaper cited medical officials as saying doctors at a hospital in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh had been due to carry out the test on Sunday evening.

The report did not say why the catheter test had failed and did not give a date for any new test.

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