A top Egyptian government official has killed himself in jail after being arrested in connection with a corruption investigation, reports say.
Wael Shalaby was a former secretary general of Egypt's administrative courts system. He resigned on Saturday, a day before his arrest.
The public prosecutor said his arrest was part of an inquiry into accusations of officials receiving bribes.
A gag order on all media over the corruption case has now been issued.
Mr Shalaby's resignation came after a procurement manager at Egypt's State Council, the umbrella organisation for the country's administrative courts, was arrested.
Gamal al-Din al-Labban was charged with receiving bribes worth millions of Egyptian pounds.
The public prosecutor has referred to the two arrests as part of the same case.
