Cairo’s criminal court has adjourned the trial of toppled president Hosni Mubarak until Thursday.

The court’s decision was announced after the former strongman’s defense team continued its arguments during Wednesday’s session for the second day running.

Mubarak and his two sons, Alaa and Gamal, former interior minister Habib El-Adly and six of the latter’s aides are accused of killing protesters during the January 25 Revolution.

During the January uprising 846 protersters were killed and around 11,000 were injured.

The 83-year-old Mubarak and his sons are also charged with abusing their political authorities during the former’s tenure to amass an illegal fortune.
