Egypt Charges Former Mubarak Officials with Crimes Relating to Attacks on Demonstrators in Tahrir Square

The New York Times reports that more than two dozen former officials and allies of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak were charged this week with murder, attempted murder, and terrorism for organizing attacks on demonstrators in Tahrir (Liberation) Square during the 18-day revolution that began on January 25.  The New York Times report also noted that public anger has been rising over the slow pace of holding authorities accountable for the killings of more than 840 people during the revolt.  Demonstrations have continued in Tahrir Square to press for prosecutions and other demands.
