Egypt: Former President Hosni Mubarak died

Cairo(ANN)- Egypt’s ousted former President Hosni Mubarak has died at the age of 91, state television said today, weeks after undergoing surgery.

Mubarak ruled Egypt for 30 years until he was ousted following mass protests against his rule in 2011.

He was jailed for six years after the uprising, but was freed in 2017 after being acquitted of most charges. During his detention he was held at the Cairo military hospital – Maadi.

He was acquitted by Egypt’s highest appeals court of conspiring to kill protesters during the 2011 protests which led to his ouster. The 2017 ruling overturned the life term he had received in 2012 over the deaths of 239 people in Arab Spring protests against his rule.

A separate corruption charge was overturned in January 2015.

The former dictator became president in 1981 after Anwar Sadat’s assassination, and ruled the country for three decades.

His death comes just days after his two sons were acquitted of illicit share trading during the sale of a bank four years before the uprising that ended his rule.
