    CAIRO (AFP) – Two former Egyptian ministers are to face trial for selling natural gas to Israel at a low price, judicial sources said on Saturday.

    Sameh Fahmi and Mahmud Latif are accused of costing the state 714 million dollars in losses because of the deal, the sources said.

    Five oil ministry officials will also stand trial on the same charges.

    Fahmi and Latif, who was briefly oil minister earlier this year, are already in custody.

    They are accused of "exporting gas to Israel at a price lower than international prices, harming public finances," the sources said.

    The probe into the controversial deal has extended to ousted leader Hosni Mubarak himself.

    Mubarak, who has been detained on suspicion of involvement in the deaths of protesters, was questioned about the contract earlier this week.
