An Egyptian court on Thursday ordered former President Hosni Mubarak to stand retrial over the killing of protestors in 2011, state-run MENA news agency reported.
The retrial, the second for Mubarak over the protestor killing case, has been scheduled for November 5.
The court acquitted others involved, including Mubarak's two sons Alaa and Gamal, fugitive businessman Hussein Salem and former interior minister Habib el Adly and six of his aides, on charges of killing protestors during the January 2011 revolution and influence peddling.
Mubarak, 86, was sentenced to life in prison in 2012 for conspiring to kill 239 demonstrators, but an appeals court ordered a retrial which, after several postponements, was held last November and resulted in his acquittal.
The 86-year-old former president is serving a three-year prison term on a separate graft charge after being convicted in May 2014. He has been in detention since April 2011.
