Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been freed from detention, six years after he was overthrown in the Arab Spring uprisings of 2011.
Mubarak left the Maadi Military Hospital in Cairo where he had been detained and returned to his home in an upscale Cairo neighbourhood where the main presidential palace from which he once governed is located.
"Yes, he is now in his home in Heliopolis," Mubarak's lawyer, Farid El Deeb told Reuters when asked if Mubarak had left the hospital.
The 88-year-old was cleared of the final murder charges against him this month, after facing trial in a litany of cases ranging from corruption to the killing of protesters whose 18-day revolt stunned the world and ended his 30-year rule.
Mubarak was initially arrested in April 2011, two months after leaving office, and has since been held in prison and in military hospitals under heavy guard.
