Deposed Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been sentenced to life in prison for complicity in the killing of protesters who ousted him from power.
Thousands of protesters demonstrated in Cairo's Tahrir Square and in cities all across the country after a decision that convicted former president Mubarak.
The man who ruled Egypt with an iron fist for close to 30 years was given a life sentence for the killing of protesters during the revolution that ousted him from power in 2011.
A former minister of interior was also convicted and sentenced to life in prison, but the protesters in Cairo and elsewhere have been angered by the six senior officials who served under president Mubarak.
Following the verdict Egypt's general prosecutor said he was going to appeal the decisions that acquitted Mubarak and his two sons on corruption related charges as well as the decisions that acquitted the six senior officials for their involvement in the killing of protests.
