Egypt's Mubarak faces new trial over corruption

CAIRO - Egypt's ousted President Hosni Mubarak and his two sons are appearing before a Cairo court, facing charges that they wasted millions of dollars in public funds allocated to renovate presidential palaces.


Wednesday's session is the first in the case after a months-long pause. The trial initially opened in August, but the court sent it back to the prosecutor general who added four new defendants. The state media says they held management positions in the project. (AP)
