Egyptians protest Mubarak verdict

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Thousands of Egyptians gathered in Cairo’s Tahrir Square to protest the verdict in the case against former President Hosni Mubarak.

The demonstrations Sunday came a day after Mubarak was found guilty of the killing of protestors during last year’s uprisings against his rule, though his sons were found innocent of corruption and six top police officials were also found innocent.

Tahrir Square was the main site of the uprising in January 2011 that deposed Mubarak after a more than 30-year-reign.

Mubarak reportedly had a heart attack on the way to Tora Prison; he was admitted to the prison’s hospital.
