mubaraks trial suspended.jpgThe trial of Egypt’s ousted leader Hosni Mubarak on charges of complicity in the killing of more than 800 protesters this year has been adjourned until December 28.
The adjournment is meant to allow time for another court to rule on a request by the victims’ lawyers to remove the three-judge panel in Mubarak’s trial.

That ruling is expected on the 3rd of November.

An 18-day uprising forced Mubarak to step down on 11 February.

Mubarak is on trial together with his two sons, the former security chief and six police officers.

If convicted, Mubarak could face the death penalty.
