CAIRO - The next session in former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak's trial will be on Dec. 28, two days after a separate court convenes to decide whether to change the judges handling the case, the judge said on Sunday.

Mubarak, his two sons, the former interior minister and senior police officers, who face a range of charges including involvement in killing protesters, were in the Cairo court on Sunday when the judge announced the adjournment.

Lawyers representing families of those killed in the uprising which ousted Mubarak in February have raised a suit calling for presiding judge Ahmed Refaat and others on the judges' panel be replaced.

Mubarak's trial began on Aug. 3 and is being held at the Police Academy on the outskirts of Cairo.
