CAIRO - An Egyptian court sentenced former president Hosni Mubarak and his two sons to three years in jail on Saturday in the retrial of a corruption case.

Mubarak was sentenced to three years in prison last May for diverting public funds earmarked to renovate presidential palaces and using the money to upgrade family properties. His two sons were given four-year jail terms in the same case.
