Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and his two sons have been detained for 15 days while the country's prosecutor general investigates corruption allegations. Wednesday's detentions came a day after Mubarak, 82, was hospitalized in Sharm el-Sheik with heart problems, which afflicted him as prosecutors began questioning him over allegations of corruption and abuse of power. He is also being investigated on allegations that he ordered the military to fire on demonstrators. State prosecutors are probing his sons, Alaa and Gamal, on allegations of embezzlement.
