Egypt's Mubarak to stand trial

Ousted president accused of conspiring to use deadly force against protesters who eventually pushed him from office.

    Hosni Mubarak, Egypt's ousted president, is to stand trial along with his two sons over the deaths of anti-government protesters killed in the weeks-long security crackdown that preceded his departure from office.

    More than 800 people were killed in the protests that eventually led to Mubarak being forced to step down from the presidency.
