Egypt: Ex-ruler Hosni Mubarak, accused in deaths of hundreds, cleared of charges

(CNN) -- In what many Egyptians call the trial of the century, a court has dismissed charges against former President Hosni Mubarak related to the deaths of hundreds of protesters.

Mubarak, who ruled Egypt for almost 30 years, was accused of "inciting, arranging, and assisting to kill peaceful protesters" during the country's popular uprising in 2011. The 86-year-old had pleaded not guilty to the charges.
