Rabbi Ovadia Yosef prays for Mubarak's release

Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef defended ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak in his weekly address, Army Radio reported Sunday morning.

"Mubarak brought honor to Egypt," Ovadia said, adding that he prays god will impart the judges with the wisdom to find him innocent.
