Mubarak arrives in court for closing arguments of trial
Ousted Egyptian President Hosny Mubarak arrived in a Cairo court Monday for the beginning of the closing arguments, to be presented over two days by the lawyers of the victims, dpa reported.
Last week prosecutors demanded the death penalty for Mubarak for his alleged involvement in killing hundreds of protesters during a revolt that led to his ousting from power in February.
At least 846 people were killed during the protests.
A small group of protesters and families of the victims gathered outside the Police Academy, on the outskirts of Cairo, where the trial is being held. They shouted anti-Mubarak slogans and called for his execution.
Former interior minister Habib al-Adly and six former senior ministry officials face the same charges.
The 83-year-old Mubarak, along with his sons - Alaa and Gamal - is also charged with corruption and wasting public funds.
