CAIRO - Egyptian demonstrators scuffled with police outside the court where the trial of former president Hosni Mubarak resumed on Monday, when senior policemen were due to give the first witness testimony.

Mubarak, in hospital since April with heart problems and other reported ailments, was wheeled on a gurney into a metal defendants' cage in the court, at the Cairo Police Academy.

Judge Ahmed Refaat has banned live television coverage of the trial after the first two sessions when Egyptians watched riveted as their 83-year-old former leader lay behind bars.

Lawyers applauded the judge's decision, saying it would prevent witnesses being influenced by each other or the public.
