Egypt's former President Hosni Mubarak was released from prison on Thursday. The ousted leader was reportedly flown via medical helicopter from the Tora Prison outside Cairo to a military hospital in Maadi, a nearby suburb. Earlier this week, Egyptian authorities declared that Mubarak could no longer be legally imprisoned and ordered him to be under house arrest instead.
