Egypt court overturns Hosni Mubarak's 3-year jail term for graft

Cairo: An Egyptian court on Tuesday overturned a three-year prison sentence against ousted president Hosni Mubarak on corruption charges and ordered a retrial.

A lower court had handed down the jail term in May last year after convicting Mubarak of embezzling more than 100,000 Egyptian pounds about $14 million (10 million euros), earmarked for the maintenance of presidential palaces.

It had also handed down four-year jail sentences against the toppled leader's sons, Alaa and Gamal.
