Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak went on trial for his life in Cairo Wednesday, lying on a hospital gurney inside a steel cage in a makeshift courtroom at the police academy on the outskirts of the city. He spoke only briefly at the opening session, denying he ordered the killing of protesters at the height of the revolution that ousted him in February. Outside the court, pro- and anti-Mubarak demonstrators clashed in the street.
