Egypt police officers acquitted of 2011 killings
An Egyptian court acquitted six police officers Saturday on charges of killing 83 protesters during the country's 2011 uprising, something rights activists say could allow toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak to walk free on similar charges.

 

It's the last case in a string of acquittals for nearly 100 officers charged in the killings of more than 840 demonstrators during the 18-day revolt. That's as Mubarak's successor, ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, finds himself entangled in multiple court cases that carry the death penalty. (AP)
