Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Cairo - Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak left a hospital in Sharm el-Sheikh on Wednesday and made his way to the Egyptian capital Cairo, where he will stand trial.

The trial of Mubarak, his two sons, ex-interior minister Habib Adli and six police officers will start on Wednesday in the Police Academy in Cairo.

The opening session will be short and procedural. Mubarak faces charges of ordering the use of live ammunition to quell anti-government protests in January, which led the ouster of the veteran president.
