Egypt Begins Trial of Former Leader Mubarak

Egypt has begun the trial of former president Hosni Mubarak, who was in the courtroom nearly six months after he was toppled in an 18-day revolution calling for democratic reforms. The former leader is accused of ordering the killing of anti-government protesters during the revolution which nearly 900 people were killed. During the proceedings he was reclined on a hospital bed inside of a large cage that was built in the front of the courtroom to house all of the defendants. Mubarak has pleaded not guilty to charges that he ordered the death of hundreds of anti-government protesters. The judge adjourned the trial until August 15.
