Egypt's official news agency says the country's top appeals court has granted retrials for two senior officials under former President Hosni Mubarak.
MENA says the court on Wednesday threw out guilty verdicts for Mubarak's chief-of-staff, Zakariya Azmi, and former Agriculture Minister Amin Abaza.
Azmi, charged with illegally acquiring and concealing real estate gains, was initially sentenced to seven years. Abaza was sentenced to three years on similar charges.
