Mubarak trial suspended after former ally testified

On September 24, 2011, the trial of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was suspended after lawyers representing victims filed motions to change both the location and judge for the trial. The trial was interrupted earlier in the week when violence broke out in the courtroom. Mubarak's trial began in August 2011, with Mubarak and his sons pleading not guilty for murder of protestors. Amnesty International (AI) had reported that at least 840 people were killed during the pro-democratic Egyptian protests.
