CAIRO - The head of Egypt's ruling military council appears in a Cairo court on Sunday in the trial of Hosni Mubarak over the killing of protesters in January, giving testimony that could decide the fate of the ousted president.

Judge Ahmed Refaat has ordered Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi - who served for 20 years as Mubarak's defence minister before he became the head of the ruling military council in February - to testify behind closed doors and under a complete news blackout to protect national security.

The move has angered many Egyptians who had been demanding a transparent trial.
