CAIRO - Egypt's former interior minister, hated for the brutality of his police by the protesters who ousted President Hosni Mubarak, was jailed for 12 years on Thursday for money laundering and profiteering, a judicial source said.

Habib al-Adli is one of the most senior Mubarak-era ministers to be put on trial. His conviction highlights the desire of the generals who now rule Egypt to show their commitment to cracking down on abuse of power and corruption.
