Trial against ousted Egyptian president resumes
Monday, August 15, 2011 - 8:05am

Scuffles broke out monday as the trial against former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resumed. The ailing 83 year old is being held in a Cairo hospital during his trial. Mubarak was once again wheeled into a defendant's cage in the court on a gurney.

Mubarak is accused of corruption and complicity in the killing of protesters during the uprising that ousted him from power in february. About 850 people were killed and more than 6000 others hurt. Despite a heavy security presence outside the trial, scuffles broke out again between Mubarak supporters and opponents.
