CAIRO - The health of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak's wife has improved after suffering symptoms of a heart attack and she is now available for police to take her to prison, the health minister said on Saturday.
An anti-corruption agency ordered Suzanne Mubarak detained for 15 days on Friday as part of an investigation into charges she used her husband's influence to amass wealth unlawfully.
But she was soon admitted to a hospital in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, where she was questioned while staying with her husband, with a suspected heart attack. It was not clear how she had responded to questioning.
State news agency MENA quoted Egyptian Health Minister Ashraf Hatem as saying that her health was now "stable and that she is currently at the disposal of the police." But he did not say if or when she will be transferred to prison.
