(Newser) – Another blow for the Mubarak family: The wife of ousted Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak also got detained for questioning today over the family's wealth, reports the BBC. Suzanne Mubarak, 70, reported heart trouble upon hearing the news and is now under watch in the same hospital where her husband is under watch, also for heart trouble. It's not clear whether prosecutors want to go after her specifically or just get information about the family fortune, notes the New York Times. Two sons are imprisoned for the same kind of questioning.
