CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's state news agency says the retrial of ousted President Hosni Mubarak on charges related to the killings of protesters during the uprising against him will begin April 13.
Mubarak and his former interior minister were sentenced to life in prison in June for failing to prevent the killing of protesters during the 18-day revolution in 2011 that ended his 29-year rule. In January, an appeals court overturned the sentences and ordered a retrial.
The ruling raised public anger over what was seen as a shoddy prosecution case. Critics believed Mubarak should have been convicted for directly ordering the deadly crackdown and sentenced to death.
MENA said Sunday six security officials will also be tried. Mubarak's two sons and a business associate will be retried on corruption charges.
