Cairo's Tora prison, the facility where ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been detained since receiving a life sentence last year for failing to protect protesters during the 2011 uprising. Earlier this week, a judge ordered his release following a decision in a corruption case that saw Mubarak pay back millions in bribes and gifts. The 85-year-old could be freed as early as Thursday while he waits for his appeal against his life sentence to go ahead.
