Sense in Egypt Mubarak trial 'not legit as might be'


The trial of former president, Hosni Mubarak, continued in Egypt on Tuesday.

The deposed leader arrived at court in an ambulance and was wheeled in on his hospital bed.

He faces charges of accepting bribes, abusing presidential authority and killing unarmed protesters during last years revolution.

But in opening his defence, Mr Mubarak's lawyer argued the former ruler was a "man with clean hands a pure heart".

Robin Wright, a fellow at the US Institute of Peace who has just returned from Egypt, joined the BBC's Katty Kay to discuss the trial.
