Egypt's Mubarak Release Could Fuel More Unrest

Ad Feedback

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been released from prison.

His freedom is fanning growing concerns that his release could fuel the unrest already gripping the country.

Wednesday, the military-appointed government ordered the deposed leader be freed from jail and placed under house arrest. Mubarak also agreed to return or pay the value of gifts he received from state news organizations while in office.

The 85-year-old is still expected to appear in court next week for a separate trial.

He faces charges of complicity in the killing of protesters in the 2011 uprising, which could send him back to jail.
