Former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak sentenced to life in prison
Deposed Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak was this Saturday morning June 2nd sentenced to life in prison by a court in Egypt for ordering the killing of protesters during the uprising that swept him from power last year. About 840 people died and more than 6,000 others were wounded in the Egyptian uprising, according to Amnesty International.
Mubarak's former interior minister, Habib el-Adli, was also sentenced to life in prison on the same charge. 84 year old Mubarak is the first Arab leader to be tried by his own people in the country. But he is old nah :)
