Hosni Mubarak

In January, following the Tunisian revolution, demonstrators in Cairo’s Tahrir Square began calling for the resignation of Hosni Mubarak. But Egypt’s president of 30 years refused to step down. One week later, Mubarak announced he would not contest the new elections in September, but on Feb. 11, after weeks of growing protests, Mubarak resigned. In May, the 83-year-old dictator was ordered to stand trial for murdering Egypt’s peaceful protesters and other crimes of corruption. If convicted, he could face the death penalty.
