Cairo courts Aug. 3 began trying former president Hosni Mubarak on corruption charges and the deaths of close to 1,000 Egyptians during the uprisings that ousted him after 30 years in power. Mr. Mubarak was under house arrest at a Sharm el-Sheikh Hospital. He was also the second leader to go on trial since the rebellions that swept North Africa and the Middle East.
