Mubarak lawyers open defence case

Lawyers for the ousted Egyptian Presi­dent, Hosni Mubarak, have begun arguing the case for the defence, after his trial reopened in Cairo, the BBC said. Mubarak is accused of ordering the killing of demonstrators during unrest which led to his resignation last year. The defence’s arguments are ex­pec­ted to last three days, state media re­port. Prosecutors say Mubarak should face the death penalty, along with his co-defendants – former Interior Minis­ter Habib al-Adly and six senior policemen.
