The retrial of Egypt's ousted president Hosni Mubarak will be aired live on Egyptian television on Saturday following the approval of Judge Mahmoud Kamel El-Rashidi, who is presiding over the trial.

Rashidi agreed to provide permits to 44 Egyptian, Arabic and international media outlets to cover the trial's proceeding, the state-owned news agency MENA reported on Thursday.  

Mubarak, who received a life sentence last June for failing to protect peaceful protesters during the revolution, was granted a retrial in January due to procedural irregularities in the initial trial.

Facing retrial along with Mubarak for their role in the murder of protesters during Egypt's 18-day uprising in 2011 are former interior minister Habib El-Adly and six of his aides.
