An Egyptian court ordered deposed President Hosni Mubarak released from prison on Wednesday, further deepening the sense of crisis one week after the country’s military-backed interim government carried out what human rights advocates say was the worst single episode of extrajudicial killing in the country’s modern history.

Leaving Cairo’s Tora Prison, where Mubarak was held and the court also convened, Mubarak’s lawyer, Farid Al-Deeb, told Reuters news agency that his client could go free as soon as Thursday. State prosecutor Ahmed el-Bahrawi told the agency Mubarak’s corruption case could not be appealed.

At one time, Mubarak’s release would have triggered massive protests from the revolutionary forces that ended his 30-year rule during the winter 2011 uprising. A June 2012 ruling in a separate court case over the killing of demonstrators in 2011 set off days of protests in Cairo and other cities after the court convicted Mubarak, but failed to…

Al-Ahram writes that the new legal measures approved by the cabinet are geared towards helping security forces “maintain security and protect vital state institutions.” The publication added the armed forces would also be given powers of arrest.

The palace is now surrounded by barbed wire fences and concrete barricades, with police and soldiers guarding the perimeter. Tanks and armored vehicles we deployed in the Egyptian capital on Thursday to quell the rising unrest.

CAIRO/RAFAH, (PIC)– The Undersecretary of the Egyptian Ministry of Awqaf, Dr. Jamal Abdul Sattar, said that the breaking of the siege on the Gaza strip is an Islamic duty.

“Islam does not accept in any way that we live in luxury while our brothers are suffering disease, siege and hunger,” he said.

Abdul Sattar said, in a statement concerning the Egyptian convoy that visited the Gaza Strip recently, that the convoy was warmly welcomed by the people of Gaza, where the convoy’s members had met with all Palestinian factions and the Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh.

GAZA, (PIC)– Economist Dr. Maher Al Tabbaa affirmed that the sudden closure of the Gaza tunnels without opening the commercial crossings and without lifting the siege will cause huge economic losses in Gaza.

Al Tabbaa called, in an article on Monday, for ending the siege and the hardships caused by the imposed use of tunnels, stressing that using the tunnels will only end after opening all commercial crossings to allow the entry of all kinds of goods to the Strip.

He pointed out that the decrease in prices of building material incoming through tunnels has contributed in increasing residential buildings, implementing some projects and increasing the percentage of workers in the construction sector, and thus, significantly decreasing the unemployment rate.

The economist stressed that the tunnels, whose number exceeds 1200, have become the only alternative option available for bringing goods to Gaza, noting…
