Egypt Court Drops Murder Charges Against Hosni Mubarak
A court in Egypt has dropped the case against former President Hosni Mubarak of conspiring to kill protesters during the 2011 uprising against him, reports BBC.
He was also cleared of a corruption charge involving gas exports to Israel.
Mubarak, 86, is serving a separate three-year sentence for embezzlement of public funds.
The court, which met at a Cairo police academy, also cleared Mubarak's former Interior Minister, Habib al-Adly, and six other security officials of wrongdoing over the deaths in 2011.
Mubarak and his former interior minister were convicted of conspiracy to kill and sentenced to life in prison in June 2012 but a retrial was ordered last year.
During the uprising against Mubarak and his regime in 2011 were killed almost 900 people.
