Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef defended ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak in his weekly address, Army Radio reported Sunday morning.

The former leader was charged with the killing of protesters and abuse of power. His trial resumed three weeks ago after a delay of almost two months.

"Mubarak brought honor to Egypt," Ovadia said, adding that he prays god will impart the judges with the wisdom to find him innocent.
