Mubarak back in Egyptian court over deaths of protesters
CAIRO (AFP) - An Egyptian court on Saturday resumed the trial of toppled dictator Hosni Mubarak, who is accused of complicity in the deaths of protesters during the 2011 uprising against his rule.
State television broadcast footage of Mubarak appearing in the court in a wheelchair. He was dressed in a jacket, striped shirt and wearing dark sunglasses.
It was his second appearance in the court since his release from Cairo's Tora prison last month.
The 85-year-old former president faces an array of charges, including complicity in the deaths of some 850 people killed in the Arab Spring-inspired uprising against him, and corruption.
