CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian court on Wednesday sentenced ousted president Hosni Mubarak to three years in prison on charges of stealing public funds.

"The court orders Mohamed Hosni Mubarak to be sent to jail for three years," said the judge as Mubarak looked on from a cage flanked by his sons, who were sentenced to four years in jail on the same charges.
