Egypt's Mubarak ordered back to prison for May retrial

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been ordered back to prison from military hospital.

Mr Mubarak's retrial will open on 11 May, a Cairo appeals court says.

He is charged alongside his former interior minister and six former security chiefs with complicity in the murder and attempted murder of hundreds of protesters in January 2011.

The retrial was meant to begin on 13 April but collapsed when the presiding judge withdrew from the case.

AFP news agency quotes judicial sources as saying that Judge Mahmud al-Rashidi will preside over the case at the North Cairo Criminal Court.

Mr Mubarak will also face corruption charges, along with his sons, Alaa and Gamal, and businessman Hussein Salem.
