Egypt commission says Mubarak watched uprising
Cairo: A member of an Egyptian fact-finding mission says former President Hosni Mubarak watched the uprising against him unfold through a live TV feed, a fact that could lead to the retrial of the 84-old ousted leader already serving a life sentence.
In his trial for the deaths of some 900 protesters during the uprising, Mubarak denied knowing the size of the protests or that violence was used against them. Mubarak was convicted in June of failing to prevent the deaths.
The finding came in a 700-page report on protester deaths the past two years, submitted today to President Mohammed Morsi, according to commission member Ahmed Ragheb.
Ragheb said the commission also established that security and military used live ammunition against protesters during and after the uprising, despite their repeated denials.
