Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak could be released from prison as early as this week after prosecutors cleared him in the corruption case that had previously kept him jailed. This breaking news comes amid fresh bloodshed in the region following the execution-style killing of at least 24 policemen in the Sinai peninsula.
At least 173 people were killed, including 10 policemen, after Friday’s violent clashes in Egypt. The death toll has reached more than 700 since Wednesday.
More than 500 people have reportedly been killed in one day as violent chaos continues throughout Egypt. Both the army and Muslim Brotherhood say they're not backing down, letting the seeming "war zone" to remain a battlefield, with churches being torched in revenge by the Brotherhood as coptic Christians support the army forces.
