Egypt court to rule on Mubarak appeal over life sentence

CAIRO - A Cairo court has decided it will rule on the appeal of ousted former President Hosni Mubarak on Jan. 13, a court source said on Sunday, a move that could lead to Mubarak being retried over the killing of protesters last year.
Mubarak and former Interior Minister Habib al-Adli were sentenced to life in prison in June after a court ruled they were responsible for the deaths of around 850 people who were killed when security forces tried to quash an uprising against Mubarak.
The source said the court would rule on appeals lodged by both men on Jan. 13. If their appeals were accepted, they would be retried, the source said.
