Thousands of protesters continue to occupy Cairo's Tahrir Square to protest against the sentences handed down in the trial of former leader Hosni Mubarak. The former president and his Interior Minister Habib al-Adly were sentenced to life in prison for their role in last year's deadly crackdown on protesters. But six police commanders were acquitted, as were Mubarak's sons Alaa and Gamal. Egypt's State Prosecutor said he would appeal against the sentences. RFI talked to Heba Morayef, a researcher on Egypt for the organisation Human Rights Watch, about the impact of the verdict on the forthcoming election.
