Egypt’s former president Hosni Mubarak dies at 91

Hosni Mubarak, Egypt’s president for almost 30 years who stepped down after a popular revolution in 2011, has died. He was 91.

Mubarak served as Egypt’s fourth president starting in 1981 until his ouster in what became known as the Arab Spring revolution.

Mubarak, who died on Tuesday, left behind a complicated legacy. Mubarak’s rule was partly characterised by corruption, police brutality, political repression, and entrenched economic problems.Comments:
