Mubarak to Stand Trial Over Corruption Charges

Ad Feedback

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will be tried this summer on charges of corruption and intentionally killing protestors.

At least 846 people died in the revolt that forced Mubarak from power in February. The ousted Egyptian leader will stand trial Aug. 3.

Prosecutors believe he incited police to kill the demonstrators. The 83-year-old former leader also faces charges of corruption and seeking bribes.

Mubarak could get the death penalty if he's convicted. His two sons will also be tried at the same time on corruption charges.

Mubarak held absolute power in Egypt for nearly 30 years.
