Hosni Mubarak appears at retrial

World Bulletin / News Desk

Egypt's ousted dictator Hosni Mubarak attended his trial on Sunday after he was released from prison and placed under house arrest.

Live state television footage showed the 85-year-old in the defendants' cage along with his co-defendant interior minister, six security chiefs and his two sons.

Mubarak, who left prison for house arrest this week, is having a hearing in his retrial on charges of complicity in the deaths of protesters during the 2011 uprising that removed him.

The case is one of several against Mubarak, who was granted pre-trial release this week but placed under house arrest by the interim prime minister, Hazem el-Beblawi.
