PLEASE NOTE EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, charged with the killing of protesters and abuse of power, was wheeled into court on a hospital trolley on Monday (January 2). His trial resumed after a delay of almost two months, while lawyers demanded a new judge. Many Egyptians hope the trial will heal some of the scars of his autocratic rule and help the country find stability after nearly a year of political turmoil under the military generals who replaced him in power. But the multitude of witnesses and the complexity of the charges mean the case could drag on for months, perhaps years. Mubarak, his two sons, the former interior minister and senior police officers face charges ranging from corruption to involvement in the deaths of hundreds of protesters in the uprising that unseated him. The former leader is being held under guard at a military hospital near Cairo as doctors say he has a heart condition.
