Question of the Day
CAIRO | Egypt’s official media say ousted leader Hosni Mubarak has submitted a declaration of his wealth to authorities as he has every year since taking office in 1981.
State TV and the official news agency MENA quoted Mr. Mubarak’s “legal representative” as denying reports in local and foreign media about the size of the former president’s wealth, branding them as malicious rumors designed to stain his legacy.
The representative was not named and details of Mr. Mubarak’s declaration, including whether it was made before or after his ouster, were not given. However, the representative said Mubarak did not have any assets or property abroad.
Mr. Mubarak, who ruled for nearly 30 years, was forced out in an 18-day uprising against his authoritarian regime.
Authorities detain ex-president’s daughter
CAIRO | Iranian authorities detained the daughter of former President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the most powerful opposition supporter inside the country’s clerical leadership, the official news agency reported.
Faezeh Hashemi, who has appeared in opposition protests in the past, was arrested Sunday while trying to cause unrest by chanting anti-government slogans in one of the main streets of Tehran, the IRNA news agency said.
Iran’s opposition had called for a rally Sunday to mark a week since the deaths of two people in Feb. 14 clashes between security forces and opposition protesters in Tehran. Ms. Hashemi’s arrest suggested crowds did attempt to gather Sunday, despite severe warnings from authorities.
One international rights group whose assessments have been right in the past said large numbers of protesters had turned out on major streets in the capital and four other cities. The New York-based International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran said security forces in Tehran dispersed the crowds with gunfire and tear gas. It said one person is believed to have been killed in the capital.
The report could not be independently confirmed.
