Egyptian ex-President Hosni Mubarak released from jail

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been released from prison after appealing against his detention.

He was flown out by helicopter from Tora prison in Cairo and is now expected to be put under house arrest.

Mr Mubarak, 85, still faces charges of corruption and complicity in the killing of demonstrators during the protests that toppled him in 2011.
