Mubarak to stay inside

Issue No. 2349

An Egyptian court this week ruled that former dictator Hosni Mubarak shouldn’t be held over the killing of protesters during the revolution. But he is being kept in prison because he faces separate corruption charges.

Mubarak was convicted of conspiring to kill protesters last year. A retrial was ordered but has been delayed after protests forced the judge to stand down.
