Oct. 15 (Bloomberg) -- An Egyptian court has ordered an investigation into allegations that former heads of the military were involved in the killing of protestors in last year’s uprising that ousted former President Hosni Mubarak.

The Cairo Court of Appeals appointed Judge Hamad Tharwat to open the investigation of the former head of the army, Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, former chief of staff, Sami Anan, and the former head of the military police, Hamdi Badeen, the court said in a faxed statement today.

Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi ordered the retirement of Tantawi and Anan in August.
