An Egyptian court ordered Wednesday the release of ousted President Hosni Mubarak, but it is not yet clear if the ailing ex-leader will walk free after over two years in detention, officials said. The prospects of Mubarak’s release after the 2011 uprising against him, and a slew of court cases that made him the first Arab leader to be tried by his own people, are likely to further fuel the rest that has hit Egypt following the military coup against his successor, the first freely elected president Islamist Mohammed Morsi.
