Thousands of protesters returned to Cairo's Tahrir Square on Sunday, angry at the sentence of Muburak.
Warning of a renewed revolution, many demanded that Mubarak must face the death penalty for his treatment of the protesters during the January 2011 uprising, and pledged to protest until those who died received justice.
Others demanded that the presidential election due to take place later this month be called off. Many of the protesters expressed dismay at the two current frontrunners - Ahmed Shafiq, former prime minister during Muburak's era, and Mohamed Mursi, of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Reports emerged of protesters raiding Shariq's campaign office and burning his posters, whilst chanting, "Fayoum says Ahmed Shafiq feloul" - refering to him being part of the Mubarak era.
Protesters have called for further marches to take place on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, reported Reuters.
The United States (US) said that recent atrocities could have been prevented and tens of thousands of lives saved, if the international community had responded earlier - including in the case of Sri Lanka.
The French Embassy in Sri Lanka stated it would continue to closely follow the case of 17 aid workers, who were shot dead by Sri Lankan security forces, in order to ensure that justice is served for the killings.
