Egyptian Prosecutors Want Mubarak to Hang (Video)
Egyptian prosecutors want 83 year-old former President Hosni Mubarak to hang for his crimes.
Hosni Mubarak should be sentenced to death.
That’s the view of the chief prosecutor in the former Egyptian leader’s trial on charges of ordering the killing of anti-government protesters.
More than 800 hundred people were killed during an uprising that forced the 83-year-old from power in February.
Mubarak and his two sons, Gamal and Alaa, also face corruption charges, which carry a maximum penalty of up to 15 years in jail.
Six senior police officials and former interior minister Habib al-Adly are also in the dock amid accusations of involvement in the killing of demonstrators.
Prosecution lawyers also want those other defendants to receive the maximum sentence of death by hanging.
