This morning, Hosni Mubarak and his interior minister, Habib el Adli, were sentenced to life imprisonment for the deaths of 840 people during Egypt’s 18 days of revolution in 2011. Six senior police officers below them, however, were all acquitted. To many Egyptians that looked like a signal to the police that they could continue to act with impunity, scapegoating Mubarak to save the regime itself. In the evening, tens of thousands crowded Tahrir Square in protest.
