Alaa and Gamal Mubarak, the sons of ousted president Hosni Mubarak, arrived to court Saturday for the resumption of their trial. Former Interior Minister Habib El-Adly also arrived to court.

Defence lawyers are expected to present their case today in the trial of El-Adly and his assistants.

The former interior minister and six of his aides, along with ousted president Hosni Mubarak, stand accused of ordering security forces to open fire on unarmed protesters during last year’s uprising against the Mubarak regime, leaving over 846 dead and some 11,000 injured.
