Mubarak to be retried over killings

Egypt's highest appeals court has ordered the retrial of Hosni Mubarak on charges that he failed to stop the killing of hundreds of protesters during the uprising that ended his 29-year rule.
The ruling set November 5 as the date for the start of the ousted president's new trial.
Mubarak has been held in detention in a number of hospitals since his arrest in April 2011.
The 86-year-old, who is in poor health, now resides at a Nile-side military hospital in a leafy suburb just south of Cairo.
