Egypt's ousted president Hosni Mubarak and his sons Alaa and Gamal have arrived at the Police Academy Tuesday morning to attend another session of the “trial of the century.” Former interior minister Habib El-Adly and his ex-subordinates were earlier escorted to the makeshift courthouse.

Mubarak, his two sons, El-Adly and six of the former minister's assistants are charged with the killing of peaceful protesters during the January 25 Revolution. 846 protests were killed and 11,000 were injured during the January protests

The 83-year-old former dictator was transported from his hospital bed to the courtroom by helicopter for previous sessions.

As well as killing demonstrators during the 18-day revolt, Mubarak and his sons are accused of using their power to accumulate a fortune in money and assets through illegal means.

In today’s session, defence lawyers will respond to the accusations their clients face.
