Ousted Dictator Hosni Mubarak Released from Egyptian Prison

An Egyptian court freed Hosni Mubarak from prison today, six years after the former dictator led a crackdown on protests that killed hundreds of people opposed to his 30-year rule. The 88-year-old Mubarak left a military hospital in southern Cairo and returned to his home in the city’s northern suburbs. Mubarak’s release after his acquittal on murder charges contrasts with the fate of political activists opposed to the country’s military government. Amnesty International reports more than 1,400 people are currently being held in prisons beyond a two-year limit for pretrial detention.
