The trial of ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak resumed on Monday, as prosecutors sought the death penalty for the man they say ordered the deaths of Egyptian protesters in January and February of last year.

The former Egyptian ruler arrived at the Cairo courthouse for his trial on a stretcher. Mubarak, his former interior minister Habib al Adly and 6 top aides are on trial for ordering the deaths of protesters that had gathered in Cairo, Alexandria and other Egyptian cities calling for the fall of the regime.

The officials also face charges of corruption and exporting Egyptian gas to Israel at below-rate value.
