CAIRO (AP) - Egypt's Public Prosecutor has charged the country's former Interior Minister and several other top security officials with murder and attempted murder for their roles in the deaths of protesters during mass anti-government demonstrations.

Abdul-Magid Mahmoud said Wednesday former Interior Minister Habib el-Adly, who is in prison on other charges, and the Heads of the State, Public and Central Security Agencies are responsible for killing protesters during mass demonstrations that led to the ouster of Hosni Mubarak's regime.

The heads of security in 10 Egyptian cities also have been charged with corruption.

It's the first move by Egypt's provisional military government to hold former officials accountable for the deaths of some 300 demonstrators.
