Calls to fire top Egypt prosecutor

Activists say prosecutor-general has been slow to probe cases related to anti-Mubarak uprising.

    Egyptian activists have launched a campaign demanding the sacking of Abdel Meguid Mahmoud, the prosecutor general.

    They say Mahmoud has been slow on delivering justice, particularly in cases related to the 18-day uprising, that deposed former President Hosni Mubarak but in which more than 800 people were killed. 

    Although he led the post-revolution anti-corruption campaign including putting Mubarak and his sons in the dock, his independence and integrity are being questioned.
