CAIRO (AP) — The prosecutor in the Hosni Mubarak trial has demanded the death penalty for the ousted Egyptian leader on charges of complicity in the killing of protesters during last year's uprising against his rule.

Mustafa Khater, one of a five-member prosecution team, also asked the judge in Thursday's hearing for the death sentence for Mubarak's security chief and six top police commanders being tried in the same case.
