During his three decades in power, Hosni Mubarak amassed a fortune, which could total tens of billions of dollars, with properties in London, Los Angeles and New York.

Is there any chance that the fallen leader will have to give up his wealth? The BBC's business reporter Jon Bithrey explains that there have already been steps taken to track down his money, while politicians around the world have called for Mubarak's assets to be frozen.
