Egypt crisis: Judiciary is 'complicit & treacherous'

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been released from prison after appealing against his detention.

He was flown out of Cairo's Tora prison by helicopter to a hospital, but is now expected to be put under house arrest.

Mr Mubarak, 85, still faces charges of corruption and complicity in the killing of demonstrators during the protests that toppled him in 2011.

His release is seen by many as a sign that the military is rolling back the changes that flowed from the uprising.

A spokesperson for the Muslim Brotherhood in the UK, Mona Al-Qazzaz, has accused the Egyptian judiciary of being 'treacherous' in releasing Mubarak.
