Egypt Court Sentences Mubarak-Era Prime Minister to Five Years Jail

Judicial sources say an Egyptian court has sentenced a former prime minister under ousted president Hosni Mubara to five years in jail on graft charges in a retrial. Ahmed Nazif,had previously been sentenced to three years before launching an appeal that led to the retrial. The Daily Mail says two of Nazif's sons, also facing re-trial on graft charges on Wednesday, were ordered to pay fines. Many other Mubarak-era figures have been cleared of charges in recent months.
