Egypt’s Ousted President Hosni Mubarak Who Ruled For 3 Decades Dies Aged 91

Egypt’s ousted former President Hosni Mubarak has died at the age of 91, state television said on Tuesday, weeks after undergoing surgery.

Mubarak ruled Egypt for 30 years until he was ousted following mass protests against his rule in 2011. He was jailed for years after the uprising, but was freed in 2017 after being acquitted of most charges. 

The former president, was an air force commander and long considered to be a hero among the country’s military ranks for his participation in the 6th of October war in 1973. Following his ouster he had been sentenced to life in prison in 2012 for the killing of protesters before appealing the sentence. He was then cleared of the conviction five years later.
