New York Times reports former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak was sentenced to life in prison “for the killing of unarmed demonstrators during protests that ended his rule.” “It was the first verdict of an Arab ruler brought before the law by a popular revolt and for many Egyptians it may be the greatest achievement so far of the uprising that ended his rule.”
