After a trial that lasted 10 months, Hosni Mubarak, the former Egyptian president, and his former interior minister have been found guilty for their roles in the first week of the revolution, where hundreds died at the hands of police.
Mubarak was convicted for conspiring with security forces to kill anti-government protesters and sentenced to life in prison, but was acquitted on corruption charges.
His former Interior Minister was also convicted for conspiring to kill protesters, and given a life sentence.
Following his sentence, Mubarak has been flown from the court to his new home at Torah prison, on the outskirts of the capital, Cairo.
