CAIRO (AP) — Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is denying that he abused his authority to amass wealth and property in his first speech since his ouster.

In a speech broadcast on the pan-Arab news channel Al-Arabiya on Sunday, Mubarak says he is willing to cooperate in any investigation to prove that he did not own any property abroad or have foreign bank accounts.

The news channel says the speech was recorded on Saturday after demonstrators gathered in Cairo to demand the country's ruling military council launch an investigation into Mubarak's wealth. That has been a key demand of Egyptians who forced Mubarak to leave office on Feb. 11 after 18 days of mass demonstrations.
