Egypt imprisons Mubarak ally over attacks

Prosecutor General Abdel Maguid Mahmoud ordered the imprisonment of Abdel Naser al-Jabri, suspected to be among officials who unleashed Mubarak loyalists on horses and camels that charged into the protest encampment on a central Cairo square with whips and swords, attacking demonstrators.

Today Mahmoud ordered al-Jabri jailed for 15 days pending further investigation on charges of complicity in crimes that include killing protesters.

Officials put the number of protesters killed during the uprising at 365, but rights activists say the figure is much higher.
