Egypt's President Goes on Trial

Hosted by

Egypt's former President Hosni Mubarak was last seen in public when he appeared on television in February, vowing not to step down after three decades in power. Today, during another televised proceeding, he was wheeled on a gurney into a Cairo courtroom, healthy enough to firmly deny charges that could lead to his execution. Egyptians are said to be awestruck by the televised spectacle. Leila Fadel is Cairo Bureau chief for the Washington Post.
