Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak passed away at the age of 91 on Tuesday.

Fourth president Mubarak ruled Egypt for a period of 30 years before he was forced to step down on February 11, 2011 as a result of the January 25 Revolution.

Mubarak was overthrown in 2011 and he was the first leader to face trial after the Arab Spring uprisings that swept the region.

He spent six years after facing trial in a litany of cases ranging from corruption to the killing of protesters, whose 18-day revolt stunned the world.

Mubarak was freed in 2017 after he was cleared of the final murder charges against him.

His death comes just days after his two sons were acquitted of illicit share trading during the sale of a bank four years before the 2011 uprising that ended his 30-year autocratic rule.
