Egypt prosecutor appeals acquittal of 6 police officials

CAIRO - Egypt's general prosecutor lodged an appeal on Sunday against the acquittal of six senior police officials charged with the killing of protesters during the uprising against Hosni Mubarak, an assistant to the prosecutor said.
Former president Mubarak and former interior minister Habib al-Adli were sentenced to life in prison on Saturday for their role in the killings.
But the judge acquitted the six security officials for lack of evidence, a decision that worried lawyers for victims' families who said the ruling could help Mubarak win any appeal.
