Hosni Mubarak Faces Retrial in Egypt

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will be retried for allowing the killing of protesters during the 2011 Arab Spring protests, the country’s high court ruled Thursday. The 87-year-old leader was initially sentenced to life in prison in 2012. A court dropped charges against him in an initial retrial, but that move was appealed by the prosecution. His successor, Mohammed Morsi, may face the death penalty over a prison break.
