Egyptian court acquits Hosni Mubarak over protester killings

Cairo: Egyptian top court acquitted former President Hosni Mubarak over his alleged involvement in killing of hundreds of people during the 2011, reported international media.

The court, after full-day hearing declared Mubarak innocent.

He was accused of inciting the deaths of nearly 900 protesters in an 18-day uprising which finally resulted to end his rule on February 11, 2011.

Mubarak was sentenced to life in 2012 but an appeals court ordered a retrial and dismissed the charges two years later by citing technical flaws in earlier prosecution.

Hosni Mubarak has spent most of his sentence time in a military hospital since his arrest due to his illness. He, on Thursday, was arrived on stretcher in the court; remained sat on wheelchair during whole hearing.
