Cairo- Egyptian airport officials say authorities prevented the wife and son of ousted President Hosni Mubarak from flying out of the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh hours before authorities banned the Mubarak family from traveling abroad.

The officials said Monday that Mubarak’s wife Suzanne and younger son Gamal tried to board a private jet Sunday at the airport in Sharm el-Sheikh, where they have been staying since  Mubarak stepped down on Feb. 11. Authorities told them they cannot leave without special permission.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.

On Monday, Egypt’s top prosecutor seized all the funds of Mubarak and his family and banned them from traveling abroad. It was not clear whether the ban was issued because they tried to leave. ref: By Hamza Hendawi, AP
