An Egyptian court has not yet provided the reasoning behind its decision to overturn former President Hosni Mubarak's life sentence and order a retrial of the ousted leader. The ruling reignites the divisive issue of the fate of the former leader in a country still filled with political turmoil.
Egyptian prosecutors sought the death penalty in the trial of former President Hosni Mubarak. They say he was complicit in the killing of more than 800 Egyptian protesters last year.
Hosni Mubarak is well enough to be moved from a hospital in the Sinai resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, where he is under arrest, to Cairo. He will face charges of corruption and ordering the killings of protesters during the uprising that toppled him in February.
