Egypt prison ordered to release Mubarak

CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian prosecutor has ordered a Cairo prison to release deposed President Hosni Mubarak, an official said on Thursday.

The official in the prosecutor's office said written instructions had been sent to Tora prison to release Mubarak, who was toppled in a revolt in 2011.
