Egyptian court to review petition for Mubarak's release on Wednesday

CAIRO - An Egyptian court will on Wednesday review a petition for the release of deposed President Hosni Mubarak filed by his lawyer, judicial sources said.
The court will convene at the Cairo prison where Mubarak is being held, the sources said.
If the court upholds the petition, Mubarak will be released as there remains no further legal grounds for his detention, though he is being retried on charges of ordering the killing of protesters in the 2011 uprising, judicial sources say.
