Egypt court acquits Mubarak,

Egypt court acquits Mubarak, his commanders of murder charge
Ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was on Saturday acquitted by a court which found him not guilty in the killing of hundreds of protesters during the 2011 revolution that toppled his nearly three decades-long rule, overturning an earlier ruling.


Judge Mahmud Kamel al-Rashidi also acquitted Mubarak of corruption charges for exporting gas to Israel. 

The court ruled that Mubarak's seven former security commanders, including his former interior minister Habib al-Adly, were "innocent" in the killing of anti-government protesters during the 2011 revolution. 

The 86-year-old, dressed in his trademark shades and wearing the blue clothes of a convict, was wheeled into the caged dock on an upright stretcher.

His two sons were also acquitted from all corruption charges. 

Mubarak and his co-defendants were found guilty in June 2012 and sentenced to life imprisonment. 

The initial verdict was appealed successfully and a retrial began in April 2013. 

He is serving a separate three-year prison term for embezzlement of public funds.
