Egypt: 113 Injured in Protests Following Mubarak Trial – MOH
Egypt’s Health Ministry (MOH) announced that the total number of injures from yesterday’s protests in Tahrir and other squares amounted to 113.
Some of the injuries were treated in mobile clinics while urgent ones were transferred to hospitals, reported the state’s Middle East News Agency.
The protests erupted when verdicts of toppled president Hosni Mubarak, his two sons, Interior Minister and six top commanders were revealed on Saturday. While Mubarak and his Interior Minister Habib Al-Adli were sentenced to life imprisonment, Gamal and Alaa Mubarak, fugitive businessman Hussein Salem and six of Adli’s aides were acquitted of the charges.
The verdicts prompted nationwide protests and open-ended sit-ins.
