Judge withdraws from Hosni Mubarak retrial

Moustafa Hassan Abdullah's decision came moments after former Egyptian president appeared for his retrial.

    A judge presiding over the retrial of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak along with his former interior minister has withdrawn from the case.

    Moustafa Hassan Abdullah's decision came on Saturday shortly after the retrial had begun at a Cairo court.

    He said he did not wish to "embarrass myself", said Al Jazeera's Anita McNaught in Cairo.
