Egypt's Mubarak flown to court for retrial

CAIRO - Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was flown by helicopter to a courthouse on the outskirts of Cairo on Saturday for the start of his retrial over the killing of demonstrators in the 2011 uprising that overthrew him.
State television showed the 84-year-old fallen autocrat being wheeled into the building lying on a hospital gurney and wearing a white tracksuit.
Mubarak, former Interior Minister Habib al-Adli and four top aides are being retried for complicity in the murder of protesters after the highest appeals court accepted appeals by both the defense and the prosecution in January.
