Former Egyptian President Now In A Cage And On Trial

CAIRO (AP) - Egypt's deposed president has begun his trial on corruption and other charges in a hospital bed, inside a cage.

Hosni Mubarak was wheeled into the courtroom in Cairo as Egyptians watched on live TV. Outside, hundreds of his critics and supporters scuffled in the street. Mubarak, who is 83, looked ashen. He craned his neck to see what was going on in the courtroom. His two sons stood at his side, leaning over to talk with him.

Besides corruption, Mubarak is accused of ordering the killing of protesters during the uprising that ousted him earlier this year. There are nine co-defendants in his trial, including Egypt's former interior minister.

One Mubarak critic watching the trial unfold on television said it was a moment "no Egyptian ever thought was possible."
