Trial of Egypt's ex-president Hosni Mubarak resumes


09:49, August 16, 2011

The trial of Egypt's ex-president Hosni Mubarak and his two sons resumed on Monday at the Police Academy in Cairo.

The trial began at around 10:40 a.m. (0840GMT) Monday. Mubarak lay in bed with his two sons standing by inside the cage at the court.

The two sons looked relaxed and talked with each other from time to time before the trial.

Mubarak was transported to the venue by a plane from the International Medical Center.

Clashes between supporters and opponents of Mubarak erupted outside the academy as the trial started. They threw stones at each other, leaving some injured.

At the court, Judge Ahmed Refaat examined the evidences, including some DVDs and one flash memory.

Fareed El-Deeb, Mubarak's lawyer, asked for a copy of the evidences and the adjournment of the case in order to have enough time to oversee the evidences.

The trial entered a break just 20 minutes after it began.

The three first appeared in court on Aug. 3, with charges of murder and corruption. But they denied all the charges.
