According to Egyptian state television, Egypt's public prosecutor on Sunday lodged an appeal against verdicts handed down by a Cairo criminal court to ousted president Hosni Mubarak, his two sons, former interior minister Habib El-Adly and six of the latter's assistants.

Although Mubarak and El-Adly were both slapped with life sentences for participating in the crime of killing of protesters during last year's January 25 Revolution, six police chiefs were acquitted of similar charges.

In a separate corruption case, meanwhile, Mubarak, his two sons, and Egyptian business tycoon Hussein Salem were all found not guilty.
