Cheers in Egypt courtroom as Hosni Mubarak cleared

A court in Cairo has cleared former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak of conspiring to kill protesters during the 2011 uprising against his rule.

The courtroom erupted in cheers when the judge concluded Mubarak's retrial by dismissing the charges which relate to the deaths of hundreds of people.

He was also cleared of a corruption charge involving gas exports to Israel.

Mubarak, 86, is serving a separate three-year sentence for embezzlement of public funds.
