European ministers to hold talks in response to crisis in Egypt

An Egyptian court ordered the release of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak on Wednesday, a judicial and a security source said, meaning he could leave prison later in the day as there are no longer any legal grounds for his detention.

Mubarak, 85, is being retried on charges of ordering the killing of protesters during the 2011 uprising that led to his downfall. However, he has already served out the maximum amount of pretrial detention permitted in that case.
