Cairo: The prosecutor in the Hosni Mubarak trial has demanded the death penalty for the ousted Egyptian leader on charges of complicity in the killing of protesters during last year's uprising against his rule.
Mustafa Khater, one of a five-member prosecution team, also asked the judge in Thursday's hearing for the death sentence for Mubarak's security chief and six top police commanders being tried in the same case.
Mubarak and his aides are charged with being complicit in the killing of over 800 protesters during a popular uprising last year that ousted his regime. If convicted, Mubarak could face the death penalty.
Mubarak, his sons, and former minister of the interior and his top aides are accused of inciting to kill protestors during January Revolution.
