The Cairo criminal court has sentenced former president Hosni Mubarak to life imprisonment on Saturday as he was declared guilty for deaths of protesters during an uprising in January 2011.
Mubarak has been under arrest at the International Medical Center near Cairo. Mubarak, his two sons, former Interior Minister Habib al-Adli and six of his aides are accused in corruption and killings of hundreds of protestors during the popular uprising that ousted Mubarak from power.
The interior minister was also sentenced to life imprisonment at the trial under the charges.
Mubarak was overthrown in February 2011 after an 18-day popular uprising. Over 800 people were killed during the revolution, many of them protesters shot dead by security forces.
After the sentence was announced, violent clashes have flashed between the lawyers of the parties and relatives of convicts and defendants. The convicts were immediatedly taken out of the court room.
