Egypt bans Suzanne Mubarak’s nephew from traveling

Acting on orders from the Illicit Gains Authority, officials at Cairo International Airport have banned Khaled Mounir Thabet, nephew of former President Hosni Mubarak’s wife Suzanne, from traveling.

Sources at the airport said Thabet, 51, who heads a private company, tried to travel to Dubai Thursday but was not allowed to board the plane as his name was on a list of individuals banned from traveling due to suspicions of profiteering.

Thabet was allowed to leave the airport after being informed of the ban.
