Egypt has resumed the trial of ousted President Hosni Mubarak after a three-month break.

State television showed Mr. Mubarak arriving at the court in Cairo by ambulance and being wheeled inside on a hospital bed, just as the 83-year-old had been for previous sessions.

The trial had been on hold while another court considered a request for new judges to handle the case, which was rejected.

Mr. Mubarak is charged with involvement in the killings of more than 800 protesters during an uprising that forced him from office in February.

His co-defendants include his two sons, his former interior minister and six senior security officers.
