The retrial of Egypt's ousted president Hosni Mubarak will be aired live on Egyptian television on Saturday following the approval of Judge Mahmoud Kamel El-Rashidi, who is presiding over the trial.

Mubarak, who received a life sentence last June for failing to protect peaceful protesters during the revolution, was granted a retrial in January due to procedural irregularities in the initial trial.

In April, Judge Mustafa Hassan Abdullah, who was presiding over the retrial, recused himself from the case and referred it to the Cairo Appeal Court.

Facing retrial along with Mubarak for their role in the murder of protesters during Egypt's 18-day uprising in 2011 are former interior minister Habib El-Adly and six of his aides.
