Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak appears again in a Cairo court. He and his two sons face a RE-trial on corruption charges for allegedly using public funds to upgrade family properties. The funds were intended for the renovation of presidential palaces. The 86-year-old was toppled in a 2011 popular uprising and sentenced along with his sons to three years in prison last May in the SAME case. But the conviction against a frail Mubarak was overturned by Egypt's high court in January. His sons were released pending the corruption retrial. In November, a court also dropped separate charges against Mubarak of conspiring to kill protesters in the 2011 uprising against him. Mubarak is currently being treated in a military hospital in Cairo.
