CAIRO - An Egyptian court trying Hosni Mubarak over the killing of protesters who ousted him convened on Wednesday to hear more testimonies after police witnesses suggested this week that neither he nor his interior minister gave orders to shoot.
Mubarak, who has been in hospital since April and attended all three court sessions on a stretcher, arrived by helicopter, state TV said. Cameras have been barred in court.
The 83-year-old Mubarak, the first Arab head of state to be tried in person since unrest erupted across the Middle East this year, is charged with conspiring to kill protesters and "inciting" some officers to use live ammunition.
Lawyers said the court could hear three more witnesses on Wednesday, depending on the time each took.
