CAIRO, (AP) – State TV says Egypt’s top prosecutor has requested the freezing of the assets of ousted president Hosni Mubarak and his family.

In addition to the TV announcement, aimed at freezing domestic holdings, the prosecutor requested the Foreign Minister to ask other nations to freeze any assets abroad, security officials say. The freeze applies to Mubarak, his wife, his two sons and two daughters-in-law, they say. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to talk to the press.

A day earlier, official media quoted it described as Mubarak’s legal representative as saying the former president had submitted to authorities a declaration of his wealth and that he had no assets abroad.
