Mubarak, Ex-Egypt President Freed

Hosni Mubarak, Egypt’s ex-president, is freed after he was cleared of murdering protesters in 2011 Arab Spring protests, according to his lawyers

Egypt’s former president Hosni Mubarak has walked free for the first time in six years, according to his lawyer.

Mubarak left the Maadi Military Hospital where he had been detained, mostly for the past six years, and head to his home in Heliopolis on Friday.

A top appeals court cleared Mubarak earlier this month on charges of killing protesters in the 2011 uprising that ended his 30-year rule.
