#BBCtrending: Protesters doctor Mubarak 'selfie'

Protesters upset at Egypt's former president Hosni Mubarak have doctored a picture of him to include an offensive hand sign.

There's been an emotional reaction to the news that charges against Mubarak over killings during the uprising in Egypt three years ago have been dropped.

When a "selfie" of Mubarak (of sorts - it doesn't look like he actually took the picture) was posted on Twitter and Facebook following the news on 29 November, campaigners turned the photo into a message to those who took part in the Arab Spring in 2011.

Produced by Mai Noman.
