2012-01-17 12:52

Cairo - Egypt's ousted leader Hosni Mubarak and his two sons are back in court for the start of their defence lawyers' opening statements.

Mubarak is charged with complicity in the killing of hundreds of protesters during an 18-day uprising that toppled his 29-year regime last February.

He and his two sons — wealthy businessman Alaa and his one-time heir apparent Gamal — face corruption charges in the same case. All three were in court on Tuesday.

Judge Ahmed Rifaat has given the Mubaraks' defence lawyers five sessions in court to state their case.

Their defence team is led by celebrity lawyer Farid el-Deeb.
