Egypt's Mubarak, Brotherhood chiefs due in court
CAIRO (AFP) - Egypt's former president Hosni Mubarak returns to court on Sunday to face charges over protester deaths, as Muslim Brotherhood leaders make their first appearances in court on similar but unrelated charges.
Separate hearings in different parts of the capital come against the backdrop of continued tension in the country, which has been rocked by political turmoil since the army ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in a July 3 coup.
Mubarak, who left prison for house arrest this week, is scheduled to appear at a hearing in his retrial on charges of complicity in the deaths of protesters during the 2011 uprising that forced him to resign.
The case is one of several against the former president, who was granted pre-trial release by a court.
