CAIRO - Egypt will allow a television camera into court for the trials of Hosni Mubarak's associates to placate protesters calling for more transparency.

Judge Mohamed Hossam al-Gheriyani, the head of the Egyptian Supreme Judiciary Council, said in a statement on Tuesday that one camera would be allowed into each session.

Images would be shown on a screen outside the courtroom. It was not immediately clear whether court sessions would also be broadcast on public channels.

Separately, the state news agency said Gheriyani recommended moving the trials to venues that could hold more people.
