Egypt prosecutor summons former president Mubarak

CAIRO (Reuters) – Egypt’s public prosecutor summoned ousted president Hosni Mubarak as part of investigations into the killing of protesters and embezzlement of public funds, the prosecutor said on Sunday.

Mubarak’s sons Gamal and Alaa were also summoned in the embezzlement probe, the prosecutor said in a statement, adding that comments by Mubarak on Sunday in which he denied accusations of corruption would not affect the investigations.

Mubarak said on Sunday the allegations against his family were unfounded and he had the right to defend his reputation.
