Mubarak's Crimes Warrant Death: Prosecutor

Prosecutors handling the case against former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak called for the fallen strongman to be executed for allegedly ordering the killing of protesters. "The prosecution demands the maximum penalty against Mubarak and the rest of the accused which is death by hanging," Prosecutor Mustafa Khater told the court, where Mubarak appears daily on a gurney and sometimes in a cage. As protests against his 30-year regime built to a crescendo last January, Mubarak, 83, allegedly told soldiers to "shoot to kill" demonstrators. Since his ouster, the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood has won control of parliament.
