Friday, June 1, 2012
CAIRO (AP) -- Egypt's ex-President Hosni Mubarak has been sentenced to life in prison after a court convicted him on charges of complicity in the killing of protesters during last year's uprising that forced him from power.
Mubarak is the first Arab leader to be tried by his own people in the country.
The sentence was handed down Saturday in a Cairo court.
