Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak

An Egyptian fact-finding commission has held ousted President Hosni Mubarak responsible for the killings of protesters during the eighteen days of demonstrations that led to his downfall.

"What is confirmed is that Mubarak's permission (to use live fire on protesters) must be obtained. The shooting lasted for several days, and he did not hold accountable those who fired live rounds. That confirms his involvement in responsibility,” AFP quoted Judge Omar Marwan, the head of the commission, as saying on Tuesday.

The commission also said that snipers were deployed to shoot protesters and that police vehicles intentionally ran over protesters, but Mubarak did not order an end to these atrocities.

The fact-finding commission's report stated that 846 people were killed and more than 6,400 others were injured in Egypt's historic revolution.

The report also noted that former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly issued shoot-to-kill orders to quell peaceful demonstrations.

Hosni Mubarak is facing charges of using violence against protesters and corruption and his family is also facing charges of corruption.

Egyptian activists say Mubarak must be tried for killing hundreds of protesters during the country's popular uprising, which led to his ouster on February 11.
