Egypt: Court in Nation Orders Retrial for Mubarak After Appeal

Cairo — An Egyptian court has ordered a retrial of ousted president Hosni Mubarak, who is serving a life sentence.

The court on Sunday granted the 84-year-old former leader a new trial, several months after he was convicted for conspiracy in the killing of hundreds of protesters during an uprising that ended his three-decade rule in 2011.

Ex-Interior Minister Habib al-Adly will also be retried on the same charge.

No date has been set for the start of their retrial.
