Egypt's president removes prosecutor general

Egypt's president has removed his prosecutor general after a court ordered acquittal of 24 loyalists of ousted President Hosni Mubarak, accused of organizing one of the most savage attacks on protesters during last year's popular uprising.

 

On Feb. 2, 2011, pro-Mubarak forces riding camels and horses, charged into the crowd in Cairo's Tahrir Square. The "Camel Battle" became a symbol of the revolution and Mubarak's efforts to suppress it. (Reuters)
