A court in Cairo is due to deliver its verdict on Hosni Mubarak, Egypt's ousted president, who is charged with complicity in the killings of civilians during last year's uprising.

Families of those killed are demanding justice for the state-sanctioned violence that claimed hundreds of lives.

Mass protests have also continued across the country by citizens calling for change.

The belief is that if Mubarak and senior figures of his regime are not held to account, confrontations with security forces could easily erupt again.
