Hosni Mubarak denied charges that he was involved in the killing of protesters and other corruption charges in the trial of former president on Wednesday.

"I entirely deny all those accusations," Mubarak said speaking from the bed where he lay inside a cage for defendants in the Cairo court. His two sons, Gamal and Alaa, both holding copies of the Muslim holy book the Koran, also denied charges.
