Prosecutor accuses Mubarak of killing protesters in trial

The prosecutor in the trial of Egypt's ousted leader Hosni Mubarak accused the former president in court on Wednesday of involvement in the killing of protesters and allowing his interior minister to use live ammunition against them.

The prosecution said Mubarak "had the intention to kill a number of protesters in different governorates who staged peaceful demonstrations against the deterioration of conditions."

He said the killings were ordered during the 18-day protest that ousted him this year and during the period from 2000 to 2010. He also accused Mubarak of allowing the former Interior Minister Habib al-Adli to use live ammunition.

The prosecutor also accused him for several crimes of corruption and wasting public funds.
