Former Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak has died at the age of 91. Egyptian state news announced the death today. Mubarak was the authoritarian president of Egypt for 30 years before being forced to step down amid the historic popular revolution in 2011 that was part of the Arab Spring. In 2017, Mubarak was acquitted on murder charges related to his violent crackdown on protesters in 2011, which killed hundreds of people. He spent six years behind bars before his release. His death comes less than a year after his successor, Mohamed Morsi, died after collapsing in court last June.
