Hosni Mubarak, the former Egyptian president, has appeared in a Cairo court to face trial on charges of conspiring to kill anti-government protesters and corruption.

Incarcerated within a court cage and lying on a stretcher, Mubarak denied all the charges before the judge.

Alongside him in the dock were his sons Gamal and Alaa Mubarak, and the former interior minister with his six aides.

Those present in the court were families of some of the almost 850 Egyptians killed during the uprising in the hope of getting justice in post-revolution Egypt.
