Toppled president Hosni Mubarak has just arrived at the Police Academy, where the second session of his trial is being held

Egypt's toppled president Hosni Mubarak has just arrived at the Police Academy on a stretcher to ‎attend the second session of his trial. ‎

The 83-year-old was transported by helicopter from the International Medical Centre on ‎Ismailiya Road, where he is being held and was taken to the court hall by an ‎ambulance.‎

Like many other former regime oligarchs, Mubarak is accused of abusing his powers ‎throughout his 30-year rule to accumulate a fortune illegally. More significantly, he is ‎accused of instigating the murder of demonstrators during the 18-day revolt against his ‎regime in January, an accusation that could see him handed the death penalty.‎

Both his sons were also seen.

The second session is to get underway within minutes.‎
