Under Mubarak, there were no mass killings along the lines of South African or some Latin American dictatorships in the 1980s. But tens of thousands of political prisoners were detained under emergency laws that expired last week after 31 years in force. Torture was systematic, and often extreme, and corruption was completely endemic. (AP Photo/Khalil Hamra, File)
