Former Egyptian president, Hosni Mubarak who was ousted during the famous Arab spring, has died at the age of 91, weeks after undergoing surgery, state television announced.
Mubarak ruled Egypt for 30 years until his ouster following the 2011 mass protests against his rule. He was later jailed for years after the uprising, but was freed in 2017 after being acquitted of most charges.
Born in 1928, Mubarak entered the air force as a teenager and went on to play a key role in the 1973 Arab-Israeli war.
He became president less than a decade later, following the assassination of President Anwar Sadat, and played a key role in the Israel-Palestinian peace process.
But despite the billions of dollars in military aid Egypt received during his time in office, unemployment, poverty and corruption continued to grow.
Discontent boiled over in January 2011, after similar protests in Tunisia led to the overthrow of the president there. Mubarak was forced to step down 18 days later.
