10:47 am on 26 August 2013

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has appeared in court, three days after being released from prison and placed under house arrest.

He is facing a retrial on charges of complicity in the killing of protesters during the 2011 uprising.

He sat in the defendants' cage along with his two sons, former interior minister, and six security chiefs.

The 85-year-old was reportedly flown by helicopter to the court from the military hospital where he is being held under house arrest. The hearing has been adjourned until 14 September.
