An Egyptian court on Monday ordered the release of ousted president Hosni Mubarak over the deaths of protesters but he will remain in custody over fraud charges, state media reported.
The Cairo court ordered "the release of former president Hosni Mubarak, so long as he is not detained on other charges," the official MENA news agency reported.
The former president, who attended Monday's court session, will remain in custody pending investigation into separate corruption charges.
Mubarak, who ruled Egypt for three decades, was ousted in a popular uprising in 2011.
