The trial of Egypt's ex-President Hosni Mubarak, who was forced from office by mass demonstrations in February, has begun in Cairo.

Mr Mubarak was taken into court at the police academy in the capital on a stretcher.

He is charged with corruption and ordering the killing of protesters - a charge that carries the death penalty. Mr Mubarak denies all charges.
