Heavy security has been deployed around a Cairo courthouse where the trial of Hosni Mubarak and his top security aides resumed on charges of ordering the killing of hundreds of protesters during Egypt's uprising early this year.
The 83-year old and ailing Mubarak was brought on Wednesday by a helicopter from a medical center where he is being detained during the proceedings to the courthouse on Cairo's outskirts. He was rolled into the courtroom on a gurney.
Earlier trial sessions saw heavy scuffles between opponents and supporters of the ousted Egyptian leader.
Security was also on alert following overnight riots in Cairo between police and soccer fans that left more than 100 people injured.
