The retrial of Egypt’s former president Hosni Mubarak which opened in Cairo on Saturday has been adjourned until June 8, a judge said. Mubarak faces charges of complicity in the deaths of protesters during the uprising that toppled him in 2011.

The retrial of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak launched on Saturday has been adjourned until June 8, the presiding judge said.

Mubarak and his former interior minister, Habib el-Adli, were convicted and sentenced to life in prison last June for failing to stop the killing of protesters in the uprising that swept him from power in 2011.

The retrial was ordered after an appeals court in January accepted appeals lodged by both the prosecution and the defence.
