After murder charges against him were dropped, former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak waved to his supporters from a gurney as he returned to a military hospital in Cairo on Saturday.

An Egyptian court dismissed murder charges against Mubarak in connection with the killing of hundreds of protesters in the 2011 uprising that ended his nearly three-decade rule, citing the "inadmissibility" of the case due to a technicality. Mubarak has spent virtually all the time since he was detained in hospitals due to poor health.
