Egypt court orders release of Mubarak's sons pending retrial

CAIRO (Reuters) - A lawyer for the sons of Egypt's ousted President Hosni Mubarak said a court ordered their release on Thursday pending retrial in a corruption case but judicial sources said they would not be freed until prosecutors review other legal cases against them.

Lawyer Farid el-Deeb said the order for the release of Alaa and Gamal Mubarak pending the retrial should mean they immediately walk free because he said they were not being tried in any other cases.
