Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak dies
Hosni Mubarak, Egypt's former president who ruled the country from 1981 until the revolution of 2011, has died at the aged of 91, the country's state media reported on Tuesday.
Mubarak ruled Egypt for 30 years until he was ousted following mass protests against his rule in 2011. He was jailed for years after the uprising, but was freed in 2017 after being acquitted of most charges.
Since their release, Mubarak’s family has remained in Egypt, where they have kept a low profile but still enjoy special treatment under former general and current president Abdel Fattah el-Sissi. El-Sissi led the military overthrow of elected but divisive Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, Mubarak’s immediate successor.
