Former Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak has died in Cairo at the age of 91.

Mubarak who was ousted by the military in 2011  spent three decades as President before the uprising that swept his regime.

He was found guilty of complicity in the killing of protesters during the revolution  but was freed in March 2017.

His death was confirmed by Egyptian state news on Tuesday. Earlier in the day, the Al-Watan website reported that he died at a military hospital.

Mubarak underwent surgery in late January and was photographed with his grandson as he recovered.
