Mubarak caged like animal

 Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak appeared nowhere. He arrived in court like a caged animal, yesterday.
Mubarak flew from Sharm el-Sheikh to the capital Cairo on Tuesday night (2 / 8). He arrived by ambulance at the Police Academy Building in Masr el-Gedida, north of Cairo. Am-bu-Lans was dika-wal several vehicles.
Officials lowered Mubarak from the car and brought into the courtroom. His face was pale and weak lying in bed in an iron cage.
This is her first appearance on television after resigned Feb. 11. Of the cage, Mubarak (83) raised his head to watch the proceedings. Be-not how he put the paper in the chest.
Mubarak's two sons, Gamal and Alaa, who is also on trial, standing beside his bed, leaning over to talk to him.
Mubarak and the nine defendants, including former Interior Minister Habib El-Adly, wearing white prison clothes. They were tried for ordering the violence against demonstrators, killing more than 850 people in February.
The courtroom was too divided. Relatives of defendants sitting in rows of seats closer to the prisoners. There is a guardrail between the road in the middle of the room where about 300 people, including relatives of some of the demonstrators were killed in protests last February.
Outside the courthouse, security is very tight. Hundreds of police and military personnel on guard. Enormous public interest to witness the trial Mubarak. This is a historic moment in the Arab region in which its leaders are very rarely brought to justice.
Mubarak had dozens of supporters clashed with opponents of Mubarak outside the courtroom. They threw stones at each other before dilerai apparatus. Early in the morning, about 50 supporters had gathered Mubarak.
"We will destroy and burn in prison if convicted Mubarak," they shouted in front of hundreds of police and army troops who drove armored. If found guilty, Mubarak threatened the death penalty.
Previously, two places known as the place of the hearing. The first place is Sharm el-Sheik, the beach resort town where he was treated, both in a conference hall in Cairo. For security reasons, the trial moved to the Police Academy.
Asylum From Israel
Mubarak has been detained for several months in a hospital in Sharm el-Sheikh, the Red Sea resort town, where he was being treated for heart problems.
Before the day of the trial, there is speculation that it would do everything possible to cancel the meeting Mubarak.
Member of Parliament of Israel Benjamin Ben Eliezer claimed to have offered asylum to Mubarak. However, Millennium's Pharaoh refused. -Eliezer told Army Radio, he was offered asylum a few months ago while visiting Mubarak. Eliozer-Mubarak good friends. There has been no co-men-tar from the government of Israel.
