Protesters chant outside the court where a verdict for former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been postponed. They’re demanding justice for loved ones killed during a 2011 uprising against the former president that brought his 30 years in power to an end.
The court now set the verdict date for November 29th to determine whether or not Mubarak order the killing of protesters in 2011. Prosecutors say they need more time reviewing the case, which accuses Mubarak and his interior ministry of ordering the killing of more than 800 protesters.
Some Mubarak supporters also gathered demanding his release. In 2012, the former leader was sentenced to life in prison — but an appeals court order a retrial. He is aready serving a 3-year sentence for embezzlement at a military hospital in Cairo.
