Egypt: Hosni Mubarak to be quizzed over deaths

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been summoned by the state prosecutor for questioning over alleged corruption and killings of protesters.

The announcement came shortly after Mr Mubarak made his first statement since he was ousted two months ago, in which he denied accusations of corruption.

The former leader said he had the right to defend his reputation and denied having any assets in foreign countries.
