Egyptians Outraged by Verdict

    Egyptians gather at Tahrir Square in Cairo to call for a new revolution in Egypt, Saturday, June 2, 2012. Hosni Mubarak was sentenced to life in prison Saturday for failing to stop the killing of protesters during the uprising that forced him from power last year. The ousted president and his sons were acquitted, however, of corruption charges in a mixed verdict that swiftly provoked a new wave of anger on Egypt's streets. (AP Photo/Fredrik Persson)
