Hosni Mubarak cleared of murder

  • Two people were killed and nine injured as protesters clashed with the police in Egypt after the former Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak was cleared of the killing of hundreds of people who took to the streets to demand his ouster in 2011.

    Dismissing the case, a court in Cairo ruled that it had no jurisdiction over what it termed politically motivated charges

    Mubarak was acquitted of many other corruption charges as well; so were key officials in his regime and his two sons.
