Mubarak, his two sons and former interior minister arrive in court to defend themselves against allegations they ordered the shooting of protesters during Egypt's revolution

Ousted President Hosni Mubarak and his sons Alaa and Gamal arrived on Sunday morning at the Police Academy where their trial is set to resume.

Former interior minister Habib El-Adly, who is being tried along with six of his assistants, has also arrived at the Police Academy where the trial is taking place.

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 in the early days of last year’s uprising against the Mubarak regime, leaving over 846 dead and some 11,000 injured or maimed.
