Egypt prosecutors to appeal Mubarak verdict
Egypt's state prosecutor will appeal verdicts by the court that sentenced Hosni Mubarak and his interior minister to life in prison, but acquitted his sons and police commanders, the prosecutor's office has said.
"The state prosecutor has ordered the start of the appeals procedure," a source in his office told the AFP news agency, of Saturday's verdicts which sparked protests in several cities across Egypt.
It was not immediately clear whether all the verdicts would be appealed or just the acquittals.
The prosecutor has also ordered a travel ban on the six police commanders pending the appeal, the official MENA news agency reported.
