Egypt court orders retrial for Hosni Mubarak after appeal
A court in Egypt has ordered a retrial for ex-President Hosni Mubarak after accepting an appeal against his life sentence over the deaths of protesters.
Hosni Mubarak, 84, was overthrown last year after mass street protests in the capital Cairo and other cities, and jailed in June.
Since he was jailed, there have been frequent reports about his ill-health.
Hosni Mubarak ruled Egypt for almost 30 years, surviving at least six assassination attempts, before last year’s revolt.
Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood was elected president in June.
