Mubarak trial resumes after long delay

Many Egyptians hope that the trial, delayed for two months as lawyers demanded a new judge, will heal some of the scars of his autocratic rule and help the country find stability after nearly a year of political turmoil under the military generals who replaced him in power.
But the multitude of witnesses and the complexity of the charges mean the case could drag on for months, perhaps years.
