Egypt's Mursi orders retrial of Mubarak-era officials

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi issued a decree on Thursday ordering retrials of Hosni Mubarak-era officials involved in perpetrating violence against activists during the uprising against his rule.

The decree implies that Mubarak himself will face a retrial. He was sentenced to life in prison in June for failing to prevent the killing during the uprising that led to his February 11, 2011 downfall.
