Egypt appeals court acquits Mubarak over protester killings

Egypt appeals court acquits Mubarak over protester killingsEgypt’s top appeals court on Thursday acquitted Hosni Mubarak of involvement in the killing of protesters during a 2011 revolt, ending the final trial for the strongman who ruled for 30 years. Mubarak had been sentenced to life in 2012 but an appeals court ordered a retrial, which dismissed the charges two years later. The trial was Mubarak’s last, after prosecutors levelled various charges against him following his February 2011 resignation.
