Mubarak trial moved to new location outside Cairo

On July 30, 2011, an Egyptian judge announced that the trial of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak would be held at a police academy located on the outer border of Cairo. The new location was chosen for the heightened security, after it was reported that the trial would take place at a downtown Cairo convention center. Mubarak faced charges, including murder, relating to his abuse of power in responding to pro-democracy protesters. Mubarak is currently awaiting an appeal after an Egyptian court sentenced him to life in prison.
