Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak (88) was freed from Cairo hospital where he had been in detention for six years.  He had been at Maadi Military Hospital since 2013, when he was transferred there on bail from Torah prison.

He was ordered freed earlier this month after Egypt’s top appeals court cleared him over the deaths of protesters in the 2011 uprising.  He left the military hospital and went to his home in the northern suburb of Heliopolis.

“He went home at 8:30 this morning,” his longtime lawyer, Farid el-Deeb, who has stewarded Mr. Mubarak through a tangled cluster of prosecutions since 2011, said by telephone. “I don’t have further details, but he is home and all is well now.”

Mr. Mubarak became the president in 1981 after Anwar Sadat’s assassination.
