Egypt's ousted leader Hosni Mubarak was complicit in shootings of anti-regime protesters as he tried to face down a popular revolt, a member of an official commission said on Tuesday.
 
Judge Omar Marwan, the commission's secretary general set up to investigate violence during the demonstrations that toppled Hosni Mubarak, was speaking at a news conference after the release of its report's summary, which said "the former interior minister Habib Al-Adli should obtain the approval of Mubarak for shooting at the demonstrators.
 
The shooting lasted for several days, and he did not hold accountable those who fired live rounds, Judge Marwan said. "That confirms his involvement in responsibility," he added.
 
According to a 30-page summary of the 400-page report, the death toll in the events leading to the revolution amounted to 846 people. The number of those injured reached 6,467 until 16 February. The revolution also left 26 officers and policemen dead during the period from 25 January until 9 February.

Egypt's Public Prosecutor Abdel Meguid Mahmoud had ordered the detention of Mubarak and his two sons, Alaa and Gamal, for 15 days pending investigations into charges of inciting attacks on demonstrators during the January protests.

The Attorney General had formerly decided that Mubarak should be kept in custody and interrogated at the Sharm el-Sheikh International Hospital as he is suffering from health conditions while Alaa and Gamal were flown in a military plane from Sharm el-Sheikh to Tora Prison in Cairo after being interrogated at a court in the city of Sinai.

Mubarak and his sons are being investigated for alleged corruption, abuse of authority and inflating their wealth illegally.
