The judge in the trial of Hosni Mubarak has summoned the top brass in Egypt's new ruling military council and his former vice president to testify in closed sessions on the ousted leader's role in putting down protests against his rule.
Both the defense and prosecution sought the testimony of Field Marshal Mohammed Tantawi, who was Mubarak's defense minister and is now the military ruler. Also summoned were the military chief of staff and Omar Suleiman, Mubarak's vice president and intelligence chief.
Many Egyptians believe that their testimony is key in determining whether Mubarak ordered the use of lethal force against the uprising.
But the closed sessions, to start Sunday, will keep key details about the relations between these top figures secret.
