Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak is to face a second and final retrial over the killing of protesters during the 2011 uprising which forced him from power.

A Cairo judge has accepted the public prosecution’s appeal against an earlier court ruling that dropped the case against Mubarak.

The 87-year-old, who ruled Egypt with an iron first for three decades, has already spent at least three years behind bars for other cases.

The retrial will be based on charges against him of conspiring to kill protesters during the uprising, which was centred around Cairo’s Tahrir Square.

The new proceedings are due to start in early November.

Last month, Mubarak and his two sons were given jail sentences in the retrial of a corruption case.
